Hope Burns South Africa -Toyi-toi

Hope bubbles beneath the earth of this country like molten lava. The feet of hope-seekers burn. They find themselves dancing, demanding and burning things in the streets. They have miss-understood, misinterpreted what it's all about and so with misdirected chants and mistaken dances they burn what they are meant to rebuild. Someone tell them the truth that the burning lava beneath their feet is there to reveal to them hidden treasures.  Things to build with.
Hope burns beneath the soil of this country to overturn the old dead soil, to spit out new gold and fatten the ground you dance on. Hope burns.
