Izithakazelo ZakwaSibisi Nomlando Wabo

Sibisi!
Mahlase!
Wen’ obhincis’ umuntu ngojojo
Abanye bebhinca ngobuhlalo nobusenga
Gumede!
Izibisi zikaSishaka
Mlom’ obomvu namachwane azo
Bhovugana!
Izingubo zokwembatha zikaZulu ezidla uselwa.
Onkomo inezitho ezinhlanu, othanda ukuhlephula kwasayo kodwa kungapheli.
Wen’ osilevu side singange sempongo.
Izibisi zomshayi wodaka kuvele amanzi, kwavela uPhongolo
Mlotshwa!
Mncube!
Nomashila kaMbango
Nsuku kaMagawula
Mavela!
Nina bakwaZith’ ezinhlanu
Othandayo makaxebul’ esakhe
Nin’ enaseng’ inkomo nadl’ ubisi
Kant’ inkomo ifuyelwe inyama.
