At grandma's we played with
Ate sweets that gave us cavities
And my cousins were my best
Granny would make pap, white
Served with wors
(sausages) that made everyone's
mouth water, even mum.
We'd gather around a fire
''making maize magic'' we'd say
As we braai maize and vleis
Before the fire dies Gogo
Makes her legendary vetkoeks,
A delight to enjoy for days.
Sometimes we' climb the mango
As the thrill intrigued us, for it
The bees would buzz and we
But Gogo awaited at the kitchen
With a belt to give a hiding
But we would cry before she
In hopes of dodging the bullet.
At grandma's we grew up.
