Over imported cognac
They incinerated our views;
shook hands – ‘job well done comrades’
And shared mines and ‘indigenised’ businesses.
Over exotic coffee
they agreed on povo enslaving clauses;
shook hands –‘ job well done comrades’
And reached ‘compromises'
-          inflated parliament and oversized cabinet
On cruise boats in Kariba
and in massage parlours in Vumba
they struck political deals and ‘alliances’;
shook hands – ‘job well done comrades’
And drove us to the polls
to vote yes
for growing fleets of luxury cars
expanding waistlines
expensive holidays
and offshore accounts for them and offspring.
