I ask myself
Are we back in 1987
When Nkomo signed
That short lived Unity Accord?

Sighs of relief
Also sealed it then
As they have also now done
The power sharing deal

Sighs of relief
That later witnessed
The backward slide
That has precipitated us
Into the now of anger and disenchantment
Of the noble dream
Of the nation’s independence
From the yokes of oppression
