The words of this song, which Moerane anonymously attributes to ‘a Mosotho’ (a person from Lesotho) describe a symbiotic relationship between two very common birds of prey in southern Africa, the rock kestrel and the hawk. The kestrel shares the kill made by the hawk, as they sit amicably side-by-side, and the gist of the story seems to be, ‘You scratch my back, I’ll scratch yours’. Moerane composed the music is contrasting sections that include some interesting chromatic harmonies.
