Alexandra

Alexandra ( a modern Romeo and Juliet)

(Based on the violence between the ANC and IFP in Alexandra in 1992)

Oh Alexandra !,
what should have been a flame of hope
has been consumed by the flames of despair.
Like two lovers who wish to be together,
no force on earth can keep them apart.
But their dance is one of death and destruction
and not of love.


Jimmy Henderson
