World Leadership Price..An Elegy for Mandela (Part 2)

-give it to him, Madiba..the honour of a hero
-the man that stood so tall in the midst of all
-as the true sample of world leadership price
-to boo compromise of justice and rape of democracy
-give it to him, madiba..
-the only shining light of africa
-that shows others the way of life
-that makes love, unity and peace go round
-madiba, the ancient that was born in the past
-to make a walking way for the present generation
-to pass through..the only true leader that knows
-when to quit the podium of public service
-when the ovation is loudest and honourable
-and sitting to build other great leaders
-to follow his footsteps to make a better change
-give it to mandela..
-a standing ovation in all activities and sphere
-of human endeavours his name speaks
-what it means to be a leader
-the world on her feet for a great leader
-a gem that has taken his leave and flew
-away to the eternal land of peace and freedom
-where he rightly belong like none other
-yet his memories sings the odes of a rare legend
-He is Mandela!..He is Madiba!!..He is Amandla!!!
-the great..the uncommon icon..the flaming hero..
