Noble Nick Conrad BBC Radio Norfolk Presenter
Is our heart, head & soul talking head
On our BBC Radio Norfolk airwaves
Affectionately and aptly nick-named
“Prince Charming Of the Airwaves”
 
As on his popular BBC Radio Norfolk morning show
Flamboyant Nick shares the topical topics of the day
To get the whole county a chin-wagging and a talking
As he invites his listeners to call in to have their say!
 
Compassion & empathy are his moral codes & compass
As he guides and advises some of his troubled listeners
Who are in great despair and in need of a listening caring ear,
Nick Conrad our BBC Radio Norfolk Presenter is always there!
As Nick is confident and at ease being our “Agony Aunt”
One moment then to playing the debonair Devil’s Advocate
As Nick delights in a good old fashioned hearty debate!
 
Nick is passionate about the Norfolk peoples
Problems and their ongoing plight
As our Nick Conrad tries to put Norfolk to rights!
On the BBC Radio Norfolk as he is our “Norfolk Noble Knight”
And will fight the good fight with all his might
As Nicholas means “Victory of the people”
Noble Nick proudly and regally lives up to his Greek name
And well deserves my penned poem and his acclaim to fame!
 
With Luv, Light and Liberty,

Take My Hand

02nd February 2010
Written by: Donna Africa

Dedicated to: my fellow Zimbabweans, in the hope that you will one day find true democracy, freedom, unity, harmony & liberty!
Your Sister, Donna Africa www.donnaafrica.co.uk

Take my hand my forsaken
people of Zimbabwe
and let me guide you
to your promised land
that will finally give you
the hope and peace
of liberty and true democracy
that was so rightly meant to be

Where you will finally be set free
in your promised land of
freedom & pure democracy
away from the cruel injustices
that severely bind & tie you
under the current oppressive
dictatorship and tyranny
which unfairly govern, rule and hinder


Take my hand my abandoned
people of Zimbabwe
as in this promised land
you will no longer know
of suffering, pain or hunger
where you will prosper,
grow, harvest & reap
harmoniously and joyously
no longer the need to weep
for human rights and justice
to be observed and served

Take my hand my discarded
people of Zimbabwe
as in this promised land
you will not know of fear
homelessness, unemployment
starvation, poverty, AIDS, or disease
or hear the desperate cries
from motherless children
as they have nothing to eat
or the despair to find safe haven & flee
your homeland of promised liberty


Take my hand my beautiful
people of Zimbabwe
as I have not forgotten
or forsaken you
as you are always in my heart
and I feel your pain, hunger
and desperate needs
and I say to the “powers that be”
why do you stand idly by and
watch the people of Zimbabwe suffer so
why don’t you set them free?

I implore “the powers that be”
to be righteous, true & just
by giving and setting
the forsaken
people of Zimbabwe
back on track
onto their destined road to
true freedom and liberty
So let it be
as this was meant to be!
Bless you my Courageous People of Zimbabwe
Your Sister & Fellow Zimbabwean Donna Africa xxxx www.donnaafrica.co.uk

“The Tree of Truth”

Written & © Copyright Donna Africa 24th June 2013

 


The branches of the sturdy wise tree

sway gently in the cool gentle breeze

like long elegant fingers on a hand

they wave as beckoning and calling me,

to share and whisper it’s secrets, wisdom

and knowledge of old & new with me,

stories forgotten & untold of brave men fighting

for the glory and the honour of day’s gone past,

lessons forgotten & learnt, awareness and forgiveness

to materialize and occur and save humankind after all!

 

The branches of the strong sagacious tree

angered by the fierce gale force winds

now bend & bow violently & aggressively, before me,

back and fro they go, like passionate lovers

they perform the story of love and glory

as it entices, invites and hypnotises me

with its ardent and sensual wild dance

I go deeper and deeper into a transcendental trance

 


Transported to another dimension

it now all seems so crystal clear

my purpose and why I am here

not deluded at all as I thought before

but enlightened & illuminated

like I had never known before

no longer burdened or weighed down

by the materialistic & judgemental plane

that had gone before & of which I abhorred

love, peace, harmony & happiness

are there to meet, greet and await all

in the knowledge that the truth

will indeed set you free on your journey.

 



The Tree of prophecy & great truths

now rocking & cradling me

between its bough & branches

eerily whistles and whispers in my ear

that a new day dawns to those who care

to listen to a true prophet’s mission & vision

no more doom or gloom that we all fear

as predicted by the shaman of yesteryear

but a new level of consciousness & truth

is close at hand and very near.

 


I predict and see a new discovery to unfold

that proves we are all indeed connected as ONE

of which I knew & believed all along

from the plants to the trees,

the animals to the bees

the sun & moon to the stars,

the universe to infinity & beyond

are all connected & united

and of one and truly belong.



I love you all!

 

With Luv, Light and Liberty,

Your “Queen of Dreams”

"Asimbonanga"
"One who has yet to be seen!"

Written & © Copyright Donna Africa 2010

So off I ventured
on my journey
six years ago
to a land anew
with great hope
and belief
in my heart
to realise,
create
and make true
my African Dreams

Asimbonanga
Hey you
Hey wena
Hail to one who
has yet to be seen!

Crossing colossal
deep blue
& stormy seas
to a Great &
United Kingdom
so afar
& verdant green
to a land that
I had never seen

leaving my homelands
Zimbabwe & Africa
so far behind me
to pursue
and realise,
my frustrated
pent-up
African dreams

that had for so long
laid dormant
caged and
embedded
deep down
inside of me
longing to be
liberated
heard
and finally
set free!

Asimbonanga
Hey you
Hey wena
Hail to one who
has yet to be seen!

I don’t feel so alone
but proud & bold
as I share my
Zulu Warrior Dance
here today
before you
with the spirit
and heart of
The Great Zulu

Warrior King
Shaka Zulu
who bestows
and shares
his bravado
and bravery
with me

Asimbonanga
Hey you
Hey wena
Hail to one who
has yet to be seen!

Dressed as his
loyal Impi warrior
with bare feet
& trusty assegai
I feel the presence of
Shaka Zulu
King and Almighty
Leader near

Chieftain King Shaka Zulu
to whom I emulate
and pay homage
for giving me
great courage
and who inspires me
to share
my African dream
and vision
with the young
and the old
to make their future
bright and clear

Asimbonanga
Hey you
Hey wena
Hail to one who
has yet to be seen!

As I truly believe
and advocate
that it is never to late
and you are never too old
to realise and
conquer your dreams

Hey you
Hey wena
Hail to One
who has never given up
on her dreams!

Yebo-a-go-go!
