Kuchiri kuchema

Kuchiri kuchema kuri kwega here?
Machenere akadaro, Vhisachi panhamo!
Kana zvave zvekutsvaga mugaranhaka,
Tsiyo dzakazorwa nemiromo mitsvuku,
Zvowonge chipoko nemisodzi yenhema!

Kuchema senge mutambo wepwere,
Kusingaoni uyo angouya ari maoko,
Apunyaira rwendo kukubatai maoko,
Mhere inokwetsurwa zvine sarudzo,
Kune bedzi auya akabata chingwa.

Pasvika mukwasha wenyikamukanza,
Pakati pemhere’bva yombosendekwa,
Kutsvaka mubvuri wekumisa motokari,
Ane sikorosikoro yake obvisa mberi,
Zvemhere zvosimudzirwa mbaimbai.

Zvino zvoonge makwikwi pamhuri,
Vana vanyamunhu kuda kushamisira,
Kuti ane mhuri yakatsvindisisa ndiani?
Ko pwere dzinotsvaga chii parufu?
Dzorasa muswe kuswetuka chitunha.

Zvikanzi vemhiri simudzai maoko,
VeMerika vakati toita zvekusimuka,
Vemuno mukwasha afuma kunokama,
Iye pano ari kuvhiya mbudzi yepiri,
Kana usina mari chizvinyararira.

Varamu chikwee sevari pamuchato,
Mumwe adirwa mvura ine makoko,
Vavakidzani vemushakabvu nazvo katya,
Kubara kwasahwira zvainenge mhepo,
Ndicho here chavanoti chizvinozvino?

Nharaunda zvino yongokwenyana!
Chinguri yabvira kutaura nemaziso,
Vamwe vaedza chibhende nemadimikira,
Kuti regai kungwarangwanduka pasina,
Ari pano akafa ochonywa shure nehuku!

Zvino zvichabatsirei kutenga maruva?
Kuita mabiko pamberi peafa nenzara?
Kuuraya mombe vawengi vapfachure?
Bhokisi remari rekucherera muvhu?
Siyai zvenyu honye dziite madiro!

Unorara sei

Uchiziva wakandinyepera,
Kuti uchave neni narini,
Pese paitsika dzako tsoka,
Ndaisawe chinhambwe bodo,
Tichirarama tesakasika nyika,
Ndaiziwei kuti zvichapera?
Kukuona kuchanetsa kudai?
Zvakatanga angori mazuva,
Panopano yave kamwe pagore,
Zvave pachena wave nezvimwe,
Zviri nani muupenyu hwako,
Zvavawe nyikamukanza kudai,
Makore zvino oita kupindana,
Kana kubata zvako runhare!
Dai ndakaziva zuva riye?
Kuti raichazowe rekupedzisira,
Ndakakutsvoda chaiyo yakakosha,
Inoiziva vani, chikanganwahama,
Bva yangova fungiramumoyo,
Handina kana wekuturira,
Zviri pasi pehana yangu,
Kwangowe kutsi kwehope,
Gara zvako vakaziva wangu,
Musi wauchaomerwa neupenyu?
Dzoka ndikupe makomborero,
Unondiona kuya kumatongo,
Pamutohwe pandakaradzikwa.
