"Ek sê ek praat met djou in Kaaps

                 Here some van my critics

het nog never in allie djare

               my taal hierso geperform nie

ek sê ma net weer net soes lank gelede

                                  die’s g’n Gamat-taal nie.

’n straight en diep taal vannie mense

              waar hulle in gebore word en eerste kwyl

en dan allie transactions van hulle lewe in beklink

             hulle bietjie maybe baie liefde soek, en haat

en dan, daa' byrie final beacon vannie dood,

                   in sterwe

           en, dja of course djy moet dit sing"                

          -Adam Small - Kitaar my kruis, 1961
