Music Thumped Out Of The Minibus Taxi Rank - Poem by Gert Strydom

Music thumped out of the minibus taxi rank
with a few indigenous females dancing
bare chest with whopping breasts
shaking along with the beat

with sweat glistening on their
half-naked bodies
and some of taxi drivers grinned
at the maids of their harem

displaying their wares
to the stares of passing
European men
and Japanese foreigners
with flashing cameras
and they clapped their hands to the beat.
