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
look after our babies
polish our shoes
make our beds
clean and tidy
do the laundry
cook our meals
wash the dishes,
happy to work
from 7 in the morning to 7 at night.
