TRIBUTE MADIBA
————————-
Noble madiba
true descendant of Africa
leaved in prisons and exile
yet ; honest in every trust
humble as a child
tender hearted as a woman
who could not bear to injure
even his most envenomed foe
charity for all
malice toward none
endowed with common sense and intelligence never surpassed
grew as a stateman who won the gratitude of Africa
and admiration of the world
