Ruas Batang Tebu

Beta berang,
beta adat Molo’Uku pung kewang
Beta jaga tana sasi,
dari laut sampe ewang pung isi
Sapa ambil beta pung tana,
Beta kasi putus ujung nama

Beta Ursia-Urlima; Beta Aru!
Beta api di dada bagaru
Kalau orang-orang asing datang lalu
Bikin
Balau tabale,
Fanam manganga bulan
Akwan dipukul angin hujan
Kalau orang-orang asing datang lalu
Beta bikin perhitungan!

Beta kalewang,
beta manyala darah tete-nene moyang
Beta jaga suar bulu pombo-cendrawasih
dari manara sampe tajam ekor pari
Sapa goyang fandereng tua-tua
Beta kasi putus ilang nama
Beta kasi putus ilang rupa

Salatiga, ah bukan, di jantung burung-burung cendrawasih dan kakatua hitam. September, 2013.
