Forgotten

*This I wrote during the time of the Soccer World Cup in South Africa in 2010, when the atmosphere and soccer-fever was absolutely electric.*

Put on our smiles, packed away our tissues.
Put on the vuvus and put away complaints,
Put away the things that scars and taints.
Because Laduma-fever has grabbed this land,
We put away differences, and united we stand.
If asked about high taxes, or anything rotten,
We shake our heads and say “Eish, we have forgotten!”
