Shairi Kariri, Poem I Speak

Posted by

Pata potea, hide and seek,
Dawa zoea, you are sick,
Turban valia, like a Sikh,
Punda zuia, it will kick,

Juma kawia, that’s a week,
Nguvu tumia, u ain’t weak,
Mshumaa puliza, save the Wick,
Jo harakisha, man be quick

Milima pandia, climb the hill,
Kidonda tuliza, let it heal,
Kisigino s’mamia, on your heel,
Mwiba zuia, watch that quill,

Panapo majaliwa, that’s God’s will,
Hii ntafanya, this I will,
Gurudumu ntaziba, fix the wheel,
Hakuna kuua, no more kill,

Hiyo ni mbaya, that is bad,
Pia Haramu, also barred,
Kunguru na bata, types of birds,
Mchezo wa karata, game of cards.

Shimo la tewa, that’s a burrow,
Jina la tendo, that’s to burrow,
Omba na azima, both are borrow,
Gombana someana, that’s a quarrel,

Ona tazama, that is see,
Bahari kuzama, sinking sea,
Endeleza chakacha, start with C,
Fungua darasa, here’s the key,

Kusema kutenda, being for real,
Sinema tazama, roll that reel,
Ni nyoka-samaki, that’s an eel,
Kulinga risasi, shoot to kill,

Viatu via Nikey, check the tick,
Kuwapa motisha, makes you tick,
Kukata na shoka, Elgon Teak,
Speedisha mwenendo, just be quick

Wasanii hufanya, Art and Craft,
Popote walipo, where they at,
Kujitolea vilivyo, all their heart,
Maringo ya paka, prideful cat,

animal, cat, eyes
