Vashti by Bhekumuzi Tshuma

I came to you with my heart,

As a loving shepherd,

An innocent lamb did I come;

Expressing my naked thoughts,

Yet you rejected me with your lips

Dammed me with your eye

And you cursed me with your heart;

Today I come to you with gifts of lyric,

A bracelet of deceit I use

A ring of flattery I have used

A bouquet of cacti I compliment,

I clothe you in a white garment of sarcasm

Much to your satisfaction,

With lying lips I ornate your neck,
