Take a shoot (SASL poem)

Translation from South African Sign Language (SASL) into English

Magic is spelling
I can see my two hands
It turns into a ball
The ball is reaching toward me
Suddenly it puts on my ears
Beep, beep, beep
I look around in suspect
I put down my earphones
The ground is shaking

Magic is spelling
I can see my two hands
My two hands are reaching toward me
Suddenly I wear hearing aids
Hear, hear, hear
I get headaches, it pains
Ring, ring, ring
I take off my hearing aids
Take a shoot
