    Mandela
    Mandela

    He had turned turned turned pain
    into manna for everyone. His name
    was a mantra to exorcise
    the devil’s claw into dust

    His name was a mandala
    for focusing a golden-hued notion
    of turning turning turning a nation
    colorless in the best sense of the word.

    His heroism was his Herculean
    stamina and taking on
    the role of Sisyphus without
    a trace of bitterness.
