Enlarge poem

genoeg drama
gie ‘n good time kans
vi nou is ek oppie rhyme
en jy doen daai dans
vi nou sit ek vannie goeie goed tesame
nou voelit soes ‘n basaar met al die gewoel en geraas
checkit,
haal yt die outfit
comfort issie rule, maak space
lounge dit yt of maakie vloer toe
sak jou yster, kom kyk waar sit die move
en shine, is jou tyd
‘n my se ma se oek soe
jis jis ja!
ek like it as brasse glo aan ‘n tight come-together
spice it up met ‘n woelige daait
graf salads met feisty dames vi hoe ‘n delights
i’m telling you
vibes is mello, pursue hulle
ek loung soes ‘n couch oppie stage
soes ‘n crowd oppie balcony
loud but calm in a way
organize met die jitsvinger
wie laat die ding ruk?
maakit jou business, c’mon
