On Nazir Alli's Resignation from SANRAL

This parody is based on the Aladin Song:

Sing along to : 

Nazir Ali! Fabulous he!
Alli from SANRAL
reflect, show some respect
Down on one knee!
Now, try your best to stay calm
His tolls went up without alarm
Then come and meet his spectacular coterie

Nazir Ali!
The Tzar of tar!
Alli from SANRAL
Clever as ten government men, definitely! He faced the galloping hordes A hundred motorists with swords Who sent those goons to their lords? Why, Nazir Ali Nazir Ali!
Handsome is he,

Alli from SANRAL

That physique! How can I speak
Weak at the knee
Well, get on out in that square & Toyi Toyi
The Joburg CBD we'll destroy
To gawk and grovel and stare at Nazir Ali!

Nazir Ali!
Amorous he! 
Alli from SANRAL

Your resignation was a sight lovely to see
And that, good people, is why, 
he got dolled up and dropped by
With sixty tolls, fees galore
Packed up: his bears and lions
A brass band and more
 his forty fakirs, his cooks, his bakers
His birds that warble on key
Please wave to Nazir Ali!

This is too brilliant! As catchy as the Everton song (just way more creative).

What the F**k just happened?

I'm actually so hesitant to post this because I know some people will want more than I am prepared to give, say or do.

But I can't be silent not so much about whats happened, but what I discovered about myself in the process.

The thing that happened:
I usually offer my services in digital marketing for free for fundraisers and people who do community work. So when a local religious (sheigh) leader asked to meet me to discuss a project. I thought nothing of it. I've met with plenty of them to know how to conduct myself.

Side Note: as someone who has recently embraced Hijab, I understand there is additional scrutiny on how I conduct myself in muslim restaurants, especially with local scholars/leaders

Flag 1: said sheigh pitched up in casual clothes and I could smell the cologne on him and could see he had recently shaved and groomed. This made me nervous because the first thing he remarked on was how pretty I was.

Flag 2: he kept asking me, how long I was prepared to stay there …

Dreamlifes Quiz

So while I have been on a downer of note these last few months.
Dreamlife asked me to complete the questionnaire below

1. Why did you start your blog and does it fulfill that purpose.

I wanted to have a voice online, specifically because finding someone I could relate to was so hard. In hopes that someone else stuck between things would find something they could relate to.

I don't know if it fulfills that purposed anymore, and more just a soap box that I can let things out.

2. Whats your favourite post of all time. (your own work please)
a reminder of who I wanted to be.

3. If you could meet 3 people living or dead who would they be.

Adversity and Adversary

No matter how much I overcome,
or how much I endure

There always seems to be more venom
than there is a cure

I can't keep at it, this continuous struggle that's not real, but my reality
No matter how many of my demons I slay,
I have to fight and fight
new foes, new days.

Ya Allah, why is the first thing that leaves me, is my faith?
Why is that the hard part.

People who usually talk about Tawakkul, don't know anything about
the trouble and struggle of what it is.

What world is it, that we will live in, that allows people to play with others fate
Who don't have the emotional maturity to look for context.
To hate me because Im a misfit.(misfit is the excuse)
Maybe because Im not thin. or don't belong to the same clubs
Or maybe you just don't like a large brown woman telling you what to do.

Maybe you're the douche bag, but now it's me who must fight,
I don't WANT to, but I will HAVE to
