A tribute to Harry

By: Lehlohonolo Shale

At the festival of Letters, they say:
Greet Harry when you meet at the Academy

But one day the revellers shall be bolder
The smithereens of Change shall be stronger
Out of the sea they shall manoeuvre
Left-handed like the prisoner against the wave not dither
The same week as the reader…
