Black Soul

Black Soul

In a quest to achieve his goal

The black man

Stumbles and crumbles

And loses his soul

He believes the world to be simple

Lacking the capacity for evil

Eyes wide shut is his thesis

Praying aloud to sweet baby Jesus

The silent Lord of his Temple

Descendant of Ham

Brother of Japheth and Shem

Cursed by his father Noah

Condemned to be a slave hence the beginning of the Shoah

They want to break his soul

Hate yourself! They propagate

Slowly dying inside as they close the prison gate

The black man

Stumbles and crumbles

And loses his soul
