…FB is an utter loss tonight.
The old man is now officially not with us anymore. Everywhere quotes and pictures and reminisces and what have you’s. My feeling on the whole matter? Well, I might seem very hard hearted and compassion-less and I suppose some would say racist, but hey. He’s dead. People die. He did what he could for the suck heap after he terrorised the suck heap, and now it’s left to us to try and make it work. While he’s well out of it, having a well earned rest, with his amazingly scandalous family being left behind, and, of course, the grater populace of a very troubled country.
There’s been talk, for a few years now, that once the old man dies, the shit will hit the fan big time. Aimed mostly at whiteys, because we stole the country you see, and the non South Africans, because they are currently stealing the country. Such wisdom. Fact remains though that we might have to deal with local violence on a greater scale than before. Have to wonder if the army, whatever’s left of it, and the police force, if they can be made to do anything but sleep, have been put on high alert – even if just to be safe rather than sorry. Wonder if the world will sit up and take notice should the killings start. All just speculation of course, one never knows what the future brings.
This is the end of an era for South Africa, that’s for certain. what will become of us all in the next one? Let’s hope for the best in this particular instance. I shudder to think about the worst that can happen.
I will not be joining the bandwagon with the RIP’s and things. Although I am going to post this pic. Trust her to completely screw things up on an enormous scale…
He’s had a long life, mostly fruitful. Let him go without drama. Although that’s probably way too much to hope for – nothing The People like more than a funeral.
Let me end. I did what I did not want to do and also spouted about the event, even though I’m not participating in it anywhere else. Even I succumbed, albeit on the other side of the coin as it were.
Maybe everybody, myself included, should take heed of this quote.
And may your days be long upon the earth, as always.
