An iconic ironic image and news form

Poem by Marc Aupiais

Quite the iconic image-
In today's Johannesburg Star-
Mozambique is rioting-
Food- water- supplies...

Nothing quite simple or small-
A perfect image- Johannesburg Star-

Johannesburg top paper-
Johannesburg Star!

Police with their assault rifles,
A brigade of armoured,
Vehicled spun!

Riots in Moz-
Mozambique issues,
Troubling to bears!

Our little sister in Troubles-
South Africa-
Airs her concerns-
Media and paper-
Lil sis Moz!
