An atlantic ocean leaped off--

A crack in the ledge

Twenty seven circled cage

Table bay harbours lobster

Bake the black monster

(among lobsters, oysters shrimps and sharks)

But he was going to test himself

---An ordeal in an ethereal oven.

The Robben Island got at once pale

-- When

White whims were whirling in vainglorious boost

ROAST -- Roast--roast

Sun stumbled

-- in the hug of black star tightened

Ruptured atoms saw

A sangfroid sea monk rising

On the sepulchred skyline

Of darkest Africa

By Dr Pragya Suman
