Bass Players

Bass Players: Gibo – Mlungisi 

You play your bass touching me

And winds of fire blow

Through me in the winter of discontent

Your fingers gently stroke my ribs

And I vibrate with desire

That defies pandemics,

gunfire and exile

You touch me

My body becomes a string instrument

Pregnant with hope

In our beloved land

Touch me

I am your love song

Touch me
