Muchaburana

Ndini ndadaro,
Kuzvireva hongu ndini,
Kuti zvirege kudaro,
Zvikaramba zvakadaro,
Pachaita kuburana!

Muchateya mariva,
Mushandirapamwe,
Asi pakunovhura apa,
Nekutarira misungo,
Ave mazvakemazvake!

Saka ndati nditaure,
Ndini mbune ndadaro,
Zvifambe zvakadai,
Mhepo ikazowandisa,
Inodzoka yoita mamhepo!

Pakuhwandira ndarama,
Munenge muri pachipangano,
Ipo pakuzogovana,
Ndipo pane bongozozo,
Motsvukidzana maziso!

Munyai chete uyo,
Muridzi wesoko ndini,
Neyi zvakaita kudaro?
Ndinoda kuti zvidai,
Ehe, ndini ndadaro!

In love and money

Openly single,
And covertly evil,
Looking to mingle,
With the loaded to nibble,
Till bank accounts cripple.

With me she’s obsessed,
Continuously acting possessed,
Anyone else around is opposed,
As all my ambitions are paused,
Dreams down the drain, hosed.

Devoid of self-respect, I fumbled,
Now hard to see I stumbled,
When challenged to speak, I mumbled,
Can’t think straight no more, the mind is jumbled,
Kin and kith stare in awe, muffled!

When the coffers run dry, my time has clocked,
Now in both eyes I can be poked,
I served my purpose, she’s no more yoked,
Noone but me looks shell-shocked,
By all streets I am mocked.

The loser with whom noone wants to be flocked,
Her mobile phone is forever locked,
In social networks I’m now blocked,
Friends in sync, when near I’m outwalked,
With disappointment and pain, I am overstocked!

Doors no longer open even when I knocked,
Behind, her father ready with a riffle cocked,
If only I had known, I would have walked,
But all in mud I’m now soaked,
For tardiness and love, the chest has been docked!

Du du wareveyi

Du du wareveyi
Ndareva chishiri chabve mari
Chabve mari chati marutenga
Marutenga wati mvurachese
Handichazviiti hai ere
Zvokupisa mwana nerupiza
Pamutanda mutanda hubori

Hubori wenyu wandiramba
Wandaidya naye mhandire
Mhandire dzangu dzemusharu
Dzandakasharusa mudura
Mudura rangu rezengeza

Nditaridze nzira yemari
Kune mombe yaMatsikidze
Inotunga yakapfugama
Kusimuka yopedza dzimwe
Ndoridza nyere dzedambi

Munyanyazi

Rwizi rweupenyu, Munyanyazi!
Kutangira iko kumakomo eChimanimani,
Gonyo, rwomonyoroka kusvika kuno zasi,
Turukova vanaShinja twowana pokuturira nhuna,
Rwopfuurira kunorutsira muna Odzi,
Potodongorera kubata mhiri kuna Save,
Otakura mikwende yedzimwe dzose nzizi,
Kunorasira mutoro kugungwa remabvazuva.

Kusanganiswa narwo rwizi muponesi,
Rwusinganeti kuerera ndira kusvika zvita,
Rwoseyama parinopisa rechirimo,
Tichirima koroni mumapindu emudimba,
Nekudiridza migero kubva mune irwo rwizi,
Painonaya yezhizha toshanyura makura,
Torwupa mukana wekufema, rwofaranuka,
Yanaisa kubva rwofashamira pamadiro.

Dunhu rese rine nyota nenzara,
Rochera pachena chipo chanyadenga,
Zvinogutsa diti, simba rako chete,
Yekunwa kana yekubikisa,
Mangwanangwana rwuchakadzikana,
Tsvina yevakageza mauro ichakateramira,
Kusvika kumba pakare tofashamisa,
Kubvisa hwasaririra hutachiwana.

Idzo mhuka dzinorura dzesango,
Kana dzose dzatinoda dzepamusha,
Dzinoda chekunwa zuva nezuva,
Ndiko kuita mufudzi wakanaka,
Kana yanaya kubva ave machikichori,
Dzagarika naivo mafuro manyoro,
Tsanga dzodadisa imo mumahombekombe,
Mionde yoita zvekunwira muvhu.

Kana kugeza ndimomo zvakare murwizi,
Nharaunda yese ndipo payakatarisira,
Dzingawe hembe kukwesha paruware,
Kana man’a padzviva tokwiza nedombo,
Pedze tozora girisi rengoro zvione kufambika,
Varume kuswera mumvura hanzi tageza,
Madzimai kuJero vomirira kwodoka varege kuonekwa,
Machinda orova manja nechekure vaone kuyambuka.

Hove isharaude mhando nemhando,
Zhinji ndidzo diki, madere nemakwaya,
Magakanje nemakwama kune vakashinga,
Hombe dzesirivha dziri mune akadzama,
Tenderere, akateramira anochengeta nengwena,
Kana rave jezi tovana mikonzvi nemikunga,
Dzorasirwa kunze kana rwizi rwashatirwa,
Isu vamwe toboza tichikanda pamoto.

Vasharukwa vokukuzva mudziva reChigarandega,
Mavanobata dzino hove huru dzinenge nyenye,
Madzimai havapedzi kudiridza avo mapindu,
Vobuda vakapakata usawi, chemberedzagunhana,
Tukomana twoswerorova nyaroso muJorodhani,
Chamunyurududu, twotamba chisveru mumvura,
Vasikana voita zvekugarira mugomo makuhwa,
Vachirova chikwee, ruzha rwunobvarura nzeve!

Kukunda kubatsirwa

Kudzidza hakuperi,
Iko kugara nhaka kuona dzevamwe,
Mumamana umo matinovhakacha,
Chitsva chagara chiri murutsoka,
Motosangana neshamwari itsva,
Dzine mirairo nematambiro matsva.

Asika zano pangwa une rako,
Dziya tsika dzatakadzidza pakuyaruka,
Vavakidzani vachitichengeta savabereki,
Kutirova misikanzwa zvaisada mvumo,
Wotokotsa muromo zvirege kusvika kumba,
Vabereki vakazvinzwa zvakare worikitwa.

Zvikoro zvatakaenda zvakatiumba,
Dzingave svomho kana madimikira,
Kana iyo mitambo yakasiyanasiyana,
Kutanga kushanda kudzidziswa nenyanzvi,
Tichidongorera nepamabendekete,
Zvino zvotiyambutsa mhiri kwaLimpopo!

Kuziva mbuya huudzwa,
Nevagara vaziva kuti ndimbuya,
Nhasi wave mazvikokota wemandorokwati,
Zvowovana chipatsurirana nevasina,
Kutsanyira vamwe vaye vavata nayo,
Wotenda Musiki mumweya nemunyama!

Kapazi kamwe nakamwe kubva muhucheche,
Kunzwa nekuratidzwa, kufunda nekufemba,
Zvatakadzidziswa mudzimba kana kuchikoro,
Takashanda nesimba asi kukunda kubatsirwa,
Chiyambutsa vamwe kana wave mhiri,
Worega kushamisira kutaura kwewabaya!

Yanaya rave jezi

Takaribika doro paMasoso,
Ropa raMusikavanhu rofadzwa,
Bva isu vanhu toropafadzwa,
Chiya chamupupuri chamaichiva,
Rotevera kuvhuvhuta dutu guru,
Yakazonaya dzvotsvotsvo kumakomo,
Yechimvuramabwe, matsanza semazai,
Rave jezi, rwizi rwofashamira!

Rarai kani vasikana, munomhanyirei?
Ipo parupasa tichikurukura chinyakare,
Chipitipiti akazvara chimwandamwanda,
Munoeredzwa tambokuyambirai kudai!
Moda kutirovesa mhere yamazhambe,
Tinozviziva kuti muchangobva kuvanikwa,
Imba dzamuchaita zvekuramba manjemanje,
Pedze motizwa navo vamunomhanyira!

Imi vakuru munoda kuedza kudini?
Manatsamukanwa endonda kurota ichiyamwa,
Manonoka kukanda nhano, mukana wapfuura,
Haisisiri nguva yekuyambuka, rwashatirwa,
Minda yemudimba yose tarirai yakukurwa,
Kwozoti imi zvenyu nekudhakwa kwamakaita,
Naro gosoro ramunaro semuchapfira bapu,
Kutorara kuno mhiri mozomukira rwaserera.

Majaya aya indururani ngavasadaro,
Misikanzwa chaiyo kushamisira,
Kuyambuka vakabata muswe wemombe,
China manenji hachifambisi,
Pairi nhasi hapajairiki, yofemera pamusoro,
Yakoromora nzombe mbiri takatarisa,
Ngavadzikame hana, zvinopfuura izvi,
Chimwe nachimwe chine nguva yacho.

Kwodoka, kana iyo mhepo yopitirira,
Raenda zuva rinopisa kuti mvura isasauke,
Iro ivhu rabatwa nechando, yamira kunwirira,
Asi chisingaperi chinoshura, inoserera chete,
Kana roti kwii mangwana rudziyakamwe,
Idzo hove dzakandirwa kumahombekombe,
Kungofumojorera tichikandira muhari,
Chavira pasi mudzimu vembwa!
