... by Poetic Tee "Here, take a sip"

The death of Mandela was more celebrated than mourned
For such a great loss, that was a contradiction to the norm
When such legends pass on, heaven is known to be rent asunder
A huge shooting star is registered to cross the earth's horizon
But not so, in the case of one of the most recognized icon of 21C
Death gave enough notice that it was coming for Rolihlahla
So much so, the sudden shock an event of such magnitude generates
Was absent when mankind lost one more strand of its civility
When the moment came and the man passed, voices were raised
Not in painful cries of sorrow, but in songs of celebrations
For a life well spent, fulfilled, under the spotlight of history
Kings and Queens, the rich and poor all queued to pay homage
But tears were scarce, only praises as he was finally lowered
Ashes to ashes, dust to dust, ends another amazing journey
Once again proving true, known or unknown, the sun sets on all.
