Each where he finds him/herself, for corruption is not there, its right here where I can see it, whilst I see it somewhere…

We must march, but not in convenience, neither in claiming a superfluous moral high ground!

We must march because this disease is not just grinning at us but it is devouring our humanity.

Our marching cannot be narrowly aimed at government when our society is trapped in corruption

… and it needs us to march…

Should we really even march?

We all should be marching against ourselves, to whom will our collective marches be, if  not against us?

Or should we first not drop our heads in shame in penitence,

Change our ways, instead of expecting others to change?

Until then we will continue the blame game in which we all stand behind the door….
