Nelson Mandela is his name
Bringing Democracy to South Africa Was His Aim
He was Born on July 18 1918 in Mvezo a tiny village in district of Umtata
The Capital of the Transki But that didn`t Matter
This Child was bound for Destiny Wrong doing and Pain
He was Jailed for 27 years on Robben Island for fighting for Equality
But the Apathied Government was not having a bar of Democrocy
How was he to bring together The Black Majority
He Fought and Won against this sinful Authority
Elected as the first Democraticly elected President of this country of his
Bringing the Black and White Peuple together was quite a Quiz
He used Sport the game of Rugby and the Rugby Final of the World cup
To Meld this Great Nation together although it was only a pup
He had a vision for South Africa where people would enjoy Equal Rights
He not only Unified his own Black Aficans but also the Aparthied Whites
He was elected in 1994 and served his People of all races for five years
When he resigned in 1999 there wre congratulations Accolades and Tears
He was a Statesman highly revered but the Battles had taken their toll
He died at Ninety One but was the Captain of his Soul.
