MTEMA KUNI

Mtema kasema, hodari yeye tangu mapema,

Panga mkononi lazima, ni hatari usijaribu mpima,

Makaliye pangale, hayasemeki asilani,

Atakaye akale, kuni kwake asikose habadani.

 

Mtema kafyeka misitu, kafyerenga hadi chatu,

Haishi midomoni mwa watu, nyikani bila viatu,

Kachoronga hadi magogo, mtema hana wema na miti,

Kavuruga hadi mipingo, mtema ashindwe na vijiti?

 

Mtema mungu mtu, miti imwone imwabudu,

Mtema ana nguvu huyu mtu, vichaka vyamsujudu,

Mtema mfalme wa kukata, hata mivule haimpi shaka,

Mtema bila hata ngata, tita kujitwika hana mashaka.

 

Mtema kajisahau, kajawa na dharau,

Mtema angalau, avae kiatu cha sendeu,

Chaka kalivamia, mjanja yeye nakwambia,

Panga lake keshajinolea, kwa madaha kashambulia.

 

Thalathini na kenda jana, arubaini leo kufikia,

Kwa juhudi huyu kijana, mabinti kuwaoneshea,

Wakipita kumsalimu, madaha azidisha kutema,

Si kushangaa aone utamu, lahaula mkono kautema.

 

Mtema sasa si mtema tena, mtema sasa mtema tema,

Majuto jutia afanyeje tena, mjukuu kilema cha mapema,

Ama kweli ukilewa sifa, fedheha yakungojea kukulima,

Mtema hata leo akifa, tutamkumbuka kama kilema.
