political suicide
Losing candidates must end their campaigns. Ted Cruz and John Kasich didn't commit political suicide, but their candidacies had little left to live for. (Mike Allen)

A Poem from Mahikeng

Suicidal Thoughts
by Molefi Mokhasi

Can this beautiful night
Allow me to sleep.
And never wake to see the light
Or any of the beautiful streets

I beg my bed allow me a nap
And cover me inside its spreadsheet
Allow me to hold unto an angel of death
Such which would come as a beautiful yet a bad dream!!

Can I dream flowing with the sea flow…
That would leave me toward the edge!!
Or have reality strike me on the big snow…
To freeze my mind, my heart, legs and both hands!!

Sweet sweet sleep slippery…
Slippery slope to the six six feet!!
Six six feet delivery…
Deliver me home on my sweet sweet sleep!!
