Planted on fertile top soil
In the foreign beautiful orchard
Harbouring masuku and malambe trees
Starving in their own field

Facilitated by the gods of the land
With their uncontrollable appetites
Valuing alien species in our land
Making them important sign posts

Local species abandoned now
Mwanza-Thambani four mulombwa trees
Kasungu M’bawa species
Nsanje Mpinjipinji tree forgotten
With its fruits and timber good for the village

Thyolo-Ndata pineapple variety destroyed
With our uncontrollable and strong appetite
Promoting Indus alien species in Blantyre
Foreign cough and flu controlling the orchard
Indeed, Ficus elastica must fall
