“Zhanbotu-volost gave birth to Karpyk,
Zhanbota got used to ranks and authorities:
His friend, Aznabay, in broad daylight
He sent the dombra to be taken from me.
I am akyn. I did not give my dombra
Though I tried to snatch her villain.
With the people he beat me with Kamch ...
But the akyn did not die from that resentment,
Isn’t death such a shameful fate
Has he buried it in the land of Birzhan?
Zhanbota! Where did you see such a law
To dare to beat, someone dared?..."
