Tata Madiba's Memorial Service

Probably the strangest funeral I've ever seen.
Mourners' faces painted black, white, yellow, red and green;
Singing in their thousands as the rain poured down in sheets...
Many of them clapping hands and dancing on their seats.

They all booed their President; Obama got a cheer.
Had a fake interpreter for people who can't hear.
I thought Irish wakes were rowdy...  Little did I know.
People of South Africa just put on quite a show.
