The 2nd Level of Apartheid

A poem by Mr Floris Brown
 
How do we crush the 2nd Level of apartheid? When its big smiles with an arm length distance
 
How do we destroy the 2nd Level of apartheid? Farm workers chased straight into squatter camps
 
How do we extinguish the 2nd Level of apartheid? When the "Dop" system is still alive and in place
 
How do we freeze the 2nd Level of apartheid? Education becomes: "Right of admission reserved"
 
How do we guillotine the 2nd Level of apartheid? When asked: "What are you people doing in our neighbourhood"
 
How do we handcuff the 2nd Level of apartheid? When front covers festivals remain 99% {...} 1% {...}
 
How do we stop this inhumane 2nd Level of apartheid? Reach out. Touch somebody's heart. STOP! The heartache! ...
