A poet, Quinton Stuurman, took to social media to share his opinion on the state of South Africa in the form of a poem.
Last week, Stuurman shared a video of himself reciting a poem he wrote about the situation in the country.
Briefly.co.za translated his video, which has since gathered more than 109,000 views, in English. He starts off:
"Hello. So, usually when something bothers me I'll write a poem about it to say my say and give my opinion on it."
However, Stuurman added he wanted to make a video about the specific bothersome situation.
"This is my opinion and no one else's, you don't need to like it."
He then went on to deliver the poem:
"How are we ensured of a bright future when we have eat with candle light?
"How is this a rainbow nation when we only speak about black and white?
"Our voices fall on deaf ears, yet you have the audacity to ask for our vote,
"How much corruption lays between A and C? How confused is our country that we're stuck with 'Die A' (DA)?
"How did you manage to rearrange the alphabet, so much so that the people who follow you mark a 'x' next to your faces?
"A bunch of dream sellers, who don't want to wake up to the reality,
"Blind to your followers' needs, this is why you can't look them in the eye,
"What amusement do you all get to mess with the country's people?
"Is there a light at the end of this dark tunnel, because y'all are keeping us in the dark."
