Let it rain

Barbara Nakan, Muizenberg

Cape Town is the Mother City

To you I dedicate this ditty

Spectacular panoramic drives

One can look forward to when you arrive

But woe-is-me another side

As an octagonerian I cannot hide

A rather undignified pastime for me

Is hugging buckets of water you see

It’s really not all doom-and-gloom

Physiotherapists are having a boom

So fellow Capetonians take up the fight

If we old ones can do it

The young ones might!
