Pride Not Yourself, O Night!

Why do you permit evils

by habouring thieves in your shadows, O Night?

Why do you welcome black cats and black birds,

by allowing ‘em, und’r your arms, to bewitch the innocent?

O Night, you think you’re much wiser at night

when you give us your sleeping poison at night!

Pride not yourself, O Night,

for our Lord has destroy’d all your works

by exposing ‘em on the broad day light!

Until We With Death Travel

Far and wide we have gone,
searching the greener of life;
we toss our efforts to be anew bone
for our humble hobbies of our future lives.

All around we have struggl’d
to see our future bright,
being perfect’d by our Mak’r’s struggle
in His Glorious Heav’nly posture in bright.

Sleepless we work,
working to bett’r our expos’d marrows,
but leaving the rest to our Creator
until we with Death travel.

From The Dark Aged Continent

A people comes hurrily

from the dark aged continent,

emerging as the world super-power

in no distant time.

A people once a colony

of one European species;

a people once oppress’d,

and culture down-turn’d by the bleach’d culture.

Here comes the people of tough black skin,

The World Is Not Worth Trusting

We’re born into this realm of sorrows just like that;

sorrows, sadness and pains exactly after birth.

Nature cheats on us, we not on Nature.

We envision, we seek, we tend to have,

but have not;

we strive, we labour hard just in vain,

but Nature has multipli’d our sorrows.

Some born great gladd’n,

for Nature has made ‘em so;

oth’rs, suff’ring they all reap,

The Sea And My Gold

With my deep eye of eyes

when each eye had tak’n to their bed,

my gold, I saw in the oth’r part of the Red Sea,

the Big Red Sea of the man Moses.

At the other side of the sea

where the sea her bank has,

I snap’d to see brave, brave heads

swimming to magnet their own gold,

but I ask’d for mine, they refus’d me.

Our Heav'nly Race

Just two, two choices we’ve got on this planet:

life, life and death, death;

life on earth, eternal life in heav’n above,

and death here on earth, eternal death in hell below.

But questions, questions ask we ourselves below:

‘How do we live here on this planet? ’

‘what’s our rewards aft’r death? ’

Death is inevitable gentle young man:

plants die, animals die, we too must die

and sleep in Mr. Death’s grave;

Turning White Into Black

Deep inside their strong stubborn skulls,

and ev’n in their glitt’ring eyeballs,

they really know that black is black,

no way white will be black –

ev’n when they attempt to burn it to black,

its ashes cannot be black but grey.

But for the thirty silv’rs they want to receive,

they, from their basket mouths that can nev’r

hold on a dropp of wat’r,

say that white is not white but dark black.
