I was in my first job and still remember vividly police chasing students from my office at the top of Adderley St near the Cathedral in St Georges St – the first stirrings of my “political conscience”. Think I wrote about it in my very first manuscript, How a South African “Moegoe” * became “politically aware”

I think the students were protesting the death (“suicide”) of Ahmed Timol at John Vorster Square in 1971

HIDING FROM THE DAWN

Shrouded in darkness
Hiding from the dawn
For it seeks to expose and to burn
So guilt steers me to shadowy places
And yet hiding seems blissful folly
For sustenance lies with the dawn.
