Kaffir

The nigga rises

And brushes off his hat

with hands with grave digging

finger nails

Looks up the sun and spits

The bin provides the breakfast

Century old packets

And sets about town

Looking for a measly job

Only for a measly wage

Just to be called boss

“baas”

When he is only kaffir

Smile the yellow teeth

Today he is baas’s friend

Tomorrow not

A yesterday maybe

Today he earned the wage

Today he earned his keep

To baas he will be friend

And smile the yellow teeth

As he holds his nose

And call him

“kaffir”
