South Africa was hit by another wave of load-shedding, recently, and in true SA style, many chose to look at the ‘lighter’ side of things with some hilarious memes and jokes.
Local resident, Dhan Somlal also followed suit and decided to write a poem about load-shedding.
Our cadres who art in Eskom
Incompetency be thy name
State capture be thy game
Thy Zondo Commission come
Thy will be done
In Eskom as it is in Bossassa.
Give us this day our daily power
And we forgive you not for switching off the lights
Nor pay your bailouts and bonuses you do not deserve
For you know not what you do.
Lead us not into load shedding
But deliver us from darkness
For what is South Africa without power and lights
Cry the beloved country.
