Trying time trying tying puppet strings back together.

A judgment that dismisses an appallingly biased and inept head of the National Prosecuting Authority, Shaun Abrahams, is to be appealed by President Jacob Zuma.

This is hardly a surprise. Although a disaster at running a country, Zuma has brought appeals and dodges to keep himself out of the constant trouble he runs into with illegal and ill-considered actions to a quite amazing art form. Very clever. If you don’t want to be prosecuted for stacks of skulduggery, arrange for the bloke who will do the prosecuting to be one of your good mates. Immaterial whether he is suited for the job or not.

This gives a perfect basis for a rhyme using the Wordle 329 words.

Assault at last on puppet, who was set to fall,

Boss must sail on to run deep with appeal;

Can we afford a case to nudge delays, is all?

Hope justice seat will bar such time to steal.

    “Power tends to corrupt and absolute power corrupts absolutely.” Sadly this happens all over the world, even in democratically elected governments ways are found to finance suporrters..

    If it’s any consolation — and it shouldn’t be — we’re looking at similar stuff here.
