BLACKIES AND BROWNIES’ COUP
Come together ye black velvets
Come together all ye brownies of saints
And stage a coup;
A coup of freedom of thoughts and behaviours of hate
Equip yourselves with powerful guns;
Guns loaded with convincing word bullets
Learn to be perfect
Be perfect for the shooting ahead
Learn to fight, fight for the extinction of labeling and suspicions
Blow their brains with bullets of words
To bring them back to the reality of the comparable
No analogies must be tolerated.
Not only that, get malleable strong canes of conscience that can stroke to reality
Canes of solid evidence that can whip to knowledge
Those who see black as doom
Cane sternly, not out of vindictiveness, to erase every trait of victimization
Get bombs of enlightenment destructive enough to blast the world in seconds
And blast the superiority complex off their brains without mercy
Get clubs and batons of love that hit to kill dreadful thoughts to your detriment
Also take your workable thoughts of reason
And put them on display during the operation as you throw the bombs of enlightenment
‘Cos you have suffered, you have suffered brutality of thoughts
And many blows from the ranting of stones from mouths of self-acclaimed superiors
You have every right to conduct this coup of reason
‘Cos you have been under the abyss of grave inferiority
It is time to rid them of their distress;
The grand-lings of tamers of ‘the perceived tamed brutes’ of yester-years
Who have been bitten by the bugs of dominance
And have stuffed their hearts with corroding thick layers of hate
Directed at your generation
Blackies and Brownies, rid yourselves of all fear and go all out
For this coup to pay them for their “granders’ taming”
Pay their inhuman enlightenment with delightful wordy illumination
To be able to free yourselves of the stares of oppression
That makes you want to lay baits of death second after second
Come, let us be done with this coup
And be free as soon as possible
Many honours are begging to be received
And many humanly steeplechases are in wait to be conquered
