SAUVIGNON BLANC, SIR?

SAUVIGNON BLANC, SIR?  
© Farouk Asvat  

My comrade is drinking de sauvignon blanc
And my sister is drinking de sauvignon verde
And my brother is drinking de sauvignon rosé

It used to be
That de blanco drank de sauvignon blanc
It used to be
That de boss drank de sauvignon verde
It used to be
That de tyrant drank de sauvignon rosé

But now it is de noir
That is drinking de sauvignon blanc
But now it is de nouveau blanco
That is drinking de sauvignon verde
But now it is de comrade
That is drinking de sauvignon rosé

Drinking de blood of my brother

Son-of-a-bitch, Sir?

Bra Frooks is ...
                    []  nes 'n skollie
                    []  'n egte skollie
                    []  'n tsotsi
                    []  a real scamp
                    []  streetwise
                    []  the jokerman

Bra Frooks ...
                    []  praat soos 'n skollie
                    []  wietie soos 'n joster
                    []  wietie what-what
                    []  tunes like a durbanite
                    []  speaks like an englishman

  1. So few words conveying so much. Beautiful bitter-sweetness.
