Out Of Trench Town by Jabulani Mzinyathi

Living in the garden of inspiration
Divine inspiration
The icing on the cake
A seed germinates in the muck
Out of the slime and grime
There in the grinding poverty
Trench town gave us gems

Out of the ebony and ivory
The sweetness of honey surpassed
Teaming with other kindred spirits
The timelessness plain to see
Anthems for the downtrodden
‘no water can put out this fire’
