Oom Buks Botes

Toe ek daar aankom lê hy daar,
Het hy dalk flou geval?
Of is sy lewe klaar?
Dit maak my sommer naar…

Ek luister na sy hartklop,
Maar ek hoor niks.
Toe dink ek hardop,
“Wat is vout met oom Buks?”

Hy lê soos ‘n dooie reus,
Ek trap op sy maag.
Kan hy regtig dood wees?
Dit is my vraag.

Dink net op sy grafsteen:
“Oom Buks Botes”
Toe hoor ek ‘n kreun,
Hy’t gemaak of hy dood is!!!
