Johennesse was born in Johannesburg. He was the co-editor of Wietie literary magazine in the eighties. His collection of poems is called The Rainmaker. He is still alive as far as I know
The poem is about a South African man who is traveling from Johannesburg, likely back to his home after a day of work. He sits in the third-class car, as evidenced by the green seats. Only the third class cars had green seats; upper-class train cars had blue seats. He looks around in fear, worried about his own safety on the train. As he speaks, the train car becomes a metaphor for all of South Africa and the need for safety, and his regret and his pain that his home country is no longer safe for him.
