In Search Of Elusive Answers

by Ndaba Sibanda

leakages were liked and licked by the like-minded
what looms large now is no longer a legacy but legalities

to appear before the mines committee for gone glittery blackberries
or to dilly-dally, duck and dodge their little man`s minefield of queries?

some say the MPs are not dense to ask 15 billion questions
how did the diamond revenues develop legs and disappear!

yet others say summons are not sentences or custodial kisses
seems there is a subtle parliamentary rage over loftiness
