Tea Lovers

Once upon a time Sapekoe Tea Estate was heavenly. Today it is a hopeless example of BEE.

There was once Sapekoe Tea Estate named thereafter Makgobe Tea Estate
Great and full of grandeur is how it was named at the gate.
Tea from South Africa flavoured high teas from east to west
Accolades and more made SA one of the best.
Then came ANCs Land Reform Policy in the name of Democracy
Truth be told Redress is not a fallacy.
ANC gave to the incompetent with the wand of nepotism
Tea estates and more harvesting a cataclysm.
Heyday in Makobe was the aroma of 3000 workers
Until it was taken over by a bunch of shirkers.
2006 was the deal of R104 million in land restitution
Little did we know of the prostitution
R121 million assets stripped off Makgobe 
Alas! 2011! Successful failure; To be or not to be
Department, the estate's keeper, all just lackeys 
with deteriorating tractors, graders and bakkies
R65 million for improvement and more tea
Haha! all gone like sand in the sea!
R65 742 000 into the dilapidated estate between 2011 and 2015
left 2021 with nothing like sweet sixteen.
Black leadership, white leadership, Indian leadership and the lot
with incompetent cronies everything is ready to rot!
Brace yourselves
don't look for elves
there will be empty shelves.
When more farmers leave their land
for a few hundred grand
to see it turn to sand.
South Africa on the cliff of food security
because leadership lacks maturity.
There was once Sapekoe Tea Estate named thereafter Makgobe Tea Estate
and its now laying intestate.
Tea and Spice set route for DEIC and Cape became the hope
ANC defeated Apartheid and SA is on a slippery slope.
Zebediela orange farms another failure and disaster
What more has the ANC can do faster?
Give more to incompetent cadres, comrades & hopeless fellow countryman  
Vrede dairy farm another disaster like crap that hit the fan.
Oh! South Africa wake up and smell the teas
if not, you will not live life to the lees.
2021 is the year to revive
so our agriculture can survive.
There was once Sapekoe Tea Estate named thereafter Makgobe Tea Estate
and its now laying intestate.
Forlorn is the message on the gate
telling a tale of South Africa's ill gotten fate!

Really! Are we not seeing the big picture or are we sold a fairy tale. You be the judge!
If you have the time please watch. The fairytale we are sold is a nightmare.
