Local Tiraders Versus Foreign Traders

The SA population is disgusting,
At the least excuse they go on the rampage,
For the present, ‘foreign’ stores they’re going busting,
Is that envy, greed, or justifiable rage?

So, here and there these ‘foreign’ shops are dealers
In drugs and things against the public good,
Like ‘fencing’ stuff they have obtained from stealers;
Or lower a respected neighbourhood.

But mainly they are traders and providers
Of services they are successful at,
Not justifying actions of deriders,
Who feel at their expense they all grow fat.

Ridiculous to see the silly prancing,
The mobs indulge in while they rob and loot,
Do they believe that, if they do it dancing,
Authorities will hesitate to shoot?

Perhaps they’re right; amount of forceful action
Falls very short of what it needs to be,
But it would give great satisfaction
For them in droves mowed down that one could see.

    We had our housekeeper sleep over last night, she was besides herself.
    The firm my son, freelances has an office near Jeppe. They were nervous enough they closed up and moved the staff out.
