ONE DAY IN AFRICA - T.V.N.Z.
Poetry by Noelene Sanderson

A conglomerate mix: 
Ads . . .Appeals . . .
shockingly pink 'cobbie cuddlers'
starkly contrasting peor people
sick;
people hobbling
towards a new life  -
ANY life.
 
Any life left in US
with our flash cars  - 
thirty brands   -
to choose from?
Someone here complains he doesn't like
rice pudding!
 
Fifty-five per cent of the body
burned  -
and not complaining . . . .
I fill my hot-water-bottle.
My heart cries.
'Shame!'
 
Pills popped by the billion
in the West;
multi-million dollar
Temples
erected;
the body  -  temple of
the spirit,
neglected.
 
Children starve.
Let's not carve out
a million-dollar
epitaph!
