Well Hello There Hivers!
Before I jump away with this one, I don't really know if this would be befitting in this community but I'm not really trying to write about the situation but rather the thoughts it's making pop up.
Thoughts such as "Where are we heading?"
"Can we keep up with this and still survive?"
Stuff that makes you wonder if tomorrow will really be set in stone for us!
But then again I'm probably going to drift into a freewrite so YEAHHH!
Rather Safe Than Sorry.
I was at work, heck I think it was Tuesday or Wednesday and the boss came to fetch me in the yard underneath a vehicle I was working on. He told me I need to go with his son to their house, there's a fire somewhere in the area and we had to check if the house was in the way or at risk of any flames.
It wasn't which was great!
This fire was behind the hill close to their house moving over and away from their house.
Most people would turn around and leave after they've seen that whatever they own is safe, they won't care one bit for the man next door of him.
Irrelevant now though but we decided to stick around for a little while to see what the flames would do but at this point they had everything semi under control.
As someone who has first hand experience in wild fires I can tell you that this is a constant worry one has to carry with you. The only reason for that is because these fires are started deliberately! Yeah frikkin insane right?
It goes like this.
"Let's protest because we're not getting the education they promised us but when we are protesting let's burn down the school in the process so that we don't have to go back tomorrow.
That's really how the people in my country think. Absurd right? A country where deliberate sabotage is left to go on rampant! It's like we promote terrorism!
A Ruins In Smoke!
This hill on the edge of town can easily represent our country and what's going on in it!
It's still there but burning away at every inch of ground and I'm not talking literally (It is literally happening too!) But what I'm saying is that nothing that needs to be done gets done!
Fix the roads, nah the private sector will do that! I know of a big solar farm outside a small town and they've asked permission to power this town with the solar farm and it was all denied. Well why was it denied if we have a failed electrical grid?
Well that means that people would buy electricity from the solar farm and then it's money not being directed towards the pockets of the corrupt and oh we do have so many corrupts!
The funny part is that they keep making these empty promises to their own people and their own people gets the short end of the stick everytime! Yet here we are with them still in power!
VIVA LA ANC! PAVING THE WAY FORWARD FOR OUR BEAUTIFUL COUNTRY!
We're in deep with the Russians and the Chinese and heck taking a look at things we might even be in support of a terrorist group that has genocide on the top of their list!
HELL YEAH LET"S GO SOUTH AFRICA!
Can We Stoop So Low?
Well can we? It appears so.
See here's the thing, people don't do anything anymore because if someone witnesses these events they'd be too scared to intervene because you never know what weapon they might carry and how many is hidden away in a bush just waiting for someone to try and stop them.
Don't get me wrong I'm victim to that as well! Even though everything in me tells me to stop. So truth be told we do stoop that low and I would admit that shame.
Fortunately no one was injured during this wild fire, although I can't say the same for small animals and critters. Hopefully it was a similar situation than what we had on the farm, we didn't come across anything that was burnt! Nothing at all!
For those wondering our farm is healing wonderfully, I'd almost go as far and say it's much healthier now. Although we have some problems brewing on the side here and that is rain, it's not dire yet but if it doesn't rain some good rain in the next six weeks we might have a small problem on our hands.
For now we take it as it comes!
