Shairi la ukara.

ANGEKOSEKANA BABAKati ya walodunia, yupo ninamthamini,
Asilimia ya mia, yake yashinda tisini,
Yeye ninamsifia, ndiye wa kwangu mwandani,
Je kweli tungezaliwa, kama hangekuwa baba.Vipo vingi achangia, hasazo za aushini,
Kokote na familia, yeye ndiye tumaini,
Wana humkumbilia, anaporudi nyumbani,
Je kweli tungezaliwa, kama hangekuwa baba.Watoto humlilia, wanapotoka shuleni,
Karo wamuulizia, hata kikosa jamani,
Naye anawapatia, kwa mengi matumaini,
Je kweli tungezaliwa, kama hangekuwa baba.Alituleta dunia, kwa jina lake Manani,
Akatulinda tangia, kwenye raha na huzuni,
Mabaya yakiingia, yeye huleta amani,
Je kweli tungezaliwa, kama hangekuwa baba.Asingewepo sikia, tungekosa duniani,
Tukose kujivunia, tulosomea shuleni,
Baraka zake ndo njia, zimetupisha shidani,
Je kweli tungezaliwa, kama hangekuwa baba.Kisha kati ya mamia, asalia kileleni,
Ndiye kichwa si mkia, nyumbani ni namba wani,
Hata kizeeka pia, simtusi asilani,
Je kweli tungezaliwa, kama hangekuwa baba.Baba baba tawalia, si kinyonga abadani,
Alewapo vumilia, zihifadhi za utani,
Katu sijemvamia, aweza kukulaani,
Je kweli tungezaliwa, kama hangekuwa baba.(Toney Francis Ondelo “Chomsky Mswahili” Ndhiwa-Homabay)
