Roho ya Korosho


Ewe Mheshimiwa unayebubujika vitisho,

Laiti ningelijua una roho ya korosho:

Roho ngumu kama lilolelewa kwenye mkorosho,

Roho mbaya lilojikunja mithali ya korosho…

 

Walahi, ningekutia kwenye karai la kukaanga

Nikakukoroga chumvini kiuganga

Kisha nikakuhifadhi kwenye mkoba wangu wa karanga.

 

Jumamosi, ningekubeba mfukoni hadi ugani Kasarani,

Na pindi kipenga kianzishapo kabumbu uwanjani,

Ningeshabikia kukutafuna roho: korosho baada ya korosho

Huku nikiyasaga vyako vitisho kwa mara ya mwisho!

  3. Reading the poem reminds me of days in primary and high school when learning Visawe, now I need to get the different meanings of these words.
