Skinnery in die washuis

deur Abdullah Isaacs

Tapsiela met haar groot bek kan baie raas

Sy maak skandaal in die ou wasplaas;

Sy sê Gasbieya is skeel,

Nou wil Gasbieya vir haar verbeel

En verder

Oe Tapsiela, Gafiela en Jamiela,

Pasop! Pasop!

Hier kom motjie Dingie met haar lang snuif lip;

Haar gevreet lyk so plat soos ‘n ou wasklip.

(xiii) Write your own moppie in which you poke fun at a famous person, politician, etc.

Come with me down Paradise Road

This way please, I’ll carry along

This you won’t believe

Come with me to Paradise Place

Just outside and open your eyes

This you won’t believe

There are better days before us

And the burning bridge behind us

By us spoken;

The sky is burning

There’s a woman waiting weeping

And a young man nearly beaten

All for love

Paradise is almost closing down.
