Exile

 
(For all, far from home)
 
I’m like a snared Cassowary
Flightless in Bantustan
It would take a Missionary
To reconcile me to Man
 
Sightless is the Visionary
Banished from her Clan
Lightless, the Seminary
which falters in its Plan
 
Like a failed Apothecary
Whose panaceas do not pan
I ache for that sanctuary
where Eve both delved and span
