Summertime

By Tanyaradzwa Daringo

Summertime, and the livin’ is easy

(Daringo)

This unpoliticised nor uncriticised breath of love has never felt this pleasing

Fabricated by a place filled with so much hate and deceive

Naive childlike minds like mine which have no choice but to believe, you see

(Diehl)

Fish are jumping

(Daringo)

For they too realise the importance of change

That rejuvenated feeling when you supposedly flip a new page

Temporarily gauge, you don’t even realise that they have long placed them in their cage, but, but…

(Daringo)

Your summertime

Never met our summertime, mined and decoded into a time of slavery

Oppressed by our dear friend named “desperation”

Folks screaming “you wouldn’t even dare practise an act of bravery
