Creative fun in
the palm of your hand.

My perspective of life under the Apartheid Government of South Africa
Whites Only

In parks
at pools
in post offices
the signs read: Whites Only

whites at sports facilities
whites at the cinemas
whites in the restaurants
the signs read: Whites Only

But in our pretty homes
smiling black servants
polished our shoes
made our beds
cleaned and tidied
did our laundry
cooked our meals
washed our dishes
from 7 in the morning to 7 at night
happy to have their jobs.
