A Fruitful Occasion?

South African Elections
End Apple-ly for some,
Though impotent erections
Up Pear-ently have come.

A Naartjie is averted,
Banana Republic, too?
Im-Peach meant’s not asserted
As something they will do.

Plum-p pockets may continue
Corruption without Paw-paws —
Water-Melon cholic sins you
Find politicians cause!

Grape pleasure they’ll be taking —
In fact, be feeling Cherry —
In conse-Quince of making
Blackcurrent land mob merry.

One Fig-ures Lemon-tations
May well be widely heard;
Would Guava race relations
Sub-Lime? — but that’s absurd!

    Excellent. A very fruitful summation, Mister N.
    I did not follow any of it, although my two cast their lots.
    I presume the ANC took it? Did the DA make any headway this time around?
