Shairi: Njigi na Njege

Standard

Rafiki na mnafiki, mchungwa na mchenza,

Mitiye na suraze, kutofautisha kwatatiza.

 

Mwizi na mlinzi, karibu wafanana kwa kazi,

Angali wachapa usingizi, wao wafanya kazi.

 

Mbwa na mbwa koko, mnazi na mkoko,

Wafanana sura na mibweko, huyu jasiri yule doko

 

Rijali na choko, shatashata na boko boko

Wote wana viboko, huyu huchapa yule mla mboko

 

Chuki na upendo, hii tisa hii sita

Lau basi si kwa vitendo, apokeae ajua anachopata

 

Jogoo huyu huyu mtetea, majibu ishirini na mosi

Twajuaje ngali yaini kajifungia, subira  subirini msende kasi

 

Msemaji na alojinyamaziya, gazeti na radio

Tofauti njia wanazotumiya, lao moja kusudio

 

Akukwazaye na akupozaye, huyu kipanga huyu mwewe

Asitake bali faidaye, waseme wanajali ila wao sio wewe

 

Pata vyote kosa vtote, hakuna afueni kotekote

Utu, mali si chochote, tamaa hayeshi, ridhika na chochote

 

Niandike yote nighane yote, katu siwezi sema yote

Msoma yote na mwacha yote, katu hawawezi kuelewa vyote.

 

Ukiona njigi utadhani njege, ukinjona njege utadhani njigi

Kifaa kufanana, tui na maziwa.
