How Do You Expect Me To Know ..

Mara you can’t blame me
For speaking ‘perfect’ English
And not knowing my own
Language & culture/traditions
When it was you (Parents) who
Took me to the most expensive
Model C schools so I could
Know/learn the European way
Of doing things !!

You cloth me in English,
You feed me English,
You take me to English school,
Put me in English environment,
Speak to me in English
And you expect me to know Sesotho .. Jwang,Huh ??

But I’ve grown up now,I know who I really am.
