Disgrace she is, disgrace she left in, disgrace complete dis Grace;

And isn’t she just graceless when she puts on angry face?

Her kids need discipline, it seems, as do their female friends,

And she just loves to give it with extension-cord plug-ends,

‘First Lady’ all the media, referring to her as,

Don’t see the irony of that: a lady never was;

In fact, the Last is more like what that person you would call

Considered as a lady in any form at all;

South Africa is keeping up a record with no doubt —

They love to let the criminals come in and then go out.

  1. I ‘ve been looking forward to a change of regime for years, but now I learn there won’l be one, as the unlovely greedy Grace is a front -runner. when it comes to changing the guard……


  2. Geen respek van my kant af


  3. “Lady”. So many words have flipped in meanings. Like “tolerance” and “diversity” no longer retain their original thought – or maybe that’s just here in the US. We can hope


  4. I’m saying nothing! Thinking plenty but saying nowt!

    From abroad we can’t believe that, having acted in so criminal a fashion she’s been retrospectively allowed to get away with it. But it’s not surprising with Zimbabwe and South African politics the way they are; as with Trump’s USA and Turkey and Hungary and Russia and May’s UK democratic failures have given serial abusers of the system power to dismantle it even more. It’s depressing.


  6. No surprises there! They continue to scratch the fleas on one another’s backs.

    I just “love” the matching outfits this couple wears! Were we surprised at the outcome of this debacle? No, not really. Vriendjespolitiek as we say in Dutch.
