I met you five years ago
I needed you and there was something you needed me for
You came into my home with your people
And promised to improve the lives of my people
My family and I sat under that scotching sun, on broken down stools,
When you pledged to build roads, hospitals, houses, and schools,
I was a fool and you were somewhat wiser,
Clouding my judgement with your brown envelopes, sugar, mealie-meal, and fertiliser,
I am your woman, your child, your elder, and your youth
It is I who stood misinformed and manipulated in that voting booth
You once told me you’d help all those affected
How come you have never been here since you were elected?
Yes you do because again you need me
Only this time, I won’t let you DECEIVE ME!
I REMEMBER YOU!
