MANDELA: When an icon dies in your midst.

"@TelegraphNews: #Mandela "is in a permanent vegetative state and is assisted in breathing by a life support machine", according to court documents - AFP" -extracted from twitter.


Great people have died in the midst
Of many peoples lives; but Mandela's
Death... Swans would die if they could
Comprehend his passing, babies would
Mourn if they understood this news; great
People are felt when death takes them
Away from us. We mourn gravely because
We knew this man.
