ONLY RASTAFARI

BY RAS ALBERT WILLIAMS
(C) 2010

 

With the end of every day

We

Enslave I and I ancestors anew

With our obedience to decrees that address the aspirations of our captors.

Our passivity breeds and ugly offspring

Colonisation in its latest form.

Only Rastafari sees differently.

His patriotic chant of REPATRIATION is a threat to the establishment

that thrives on the blood of a hurdling mass… our people.

Black because

Mother Africa built her nest in the sun

TOO BLACK for sympathy

TOO BLACK for respect

But black enough to be reduced to a beast of burden.

With every new morning.

We sell out

Toussaint L’Overture.

WE hid in the comfort of our anonymity.

BEHIND A SEA OF FACES

Paul Boogle died not for us you say.

Neither did Congo Ray.

WE are content to be classless being.

Whose destiny it is to feed the hungry worms…the descendants of greedy colonialists.

ONLY RASTAFARI FEELS THE PAIN.

With the passing of centuries

WE bury our glorious heritage with alien tongues…mode

of dress, religion that tames the will to rebel,

Like Hannibal, that GREAT AFRICA WARRIOR who tried

 to abort the slaughter of an entire African race

ONLY RASTAFARI WILL PUT UP A FIGHT.

Only Rastafari will not surrender his pride

His dreadlocks circles his shoulder like mighty madras fluffing

 in the winds of change that are blowing across this planet…

Where the

BLACK STAR LINER will salvage the corpse of millions

 of Negroes whose spirits returned to the MOTHERLAND.

Only RASTAFARI cares

To think black

To talk black

To act black

To be black and be proud of that fact

That our negritude is is endowed by a

Black God in a

Black Heaven

That

Will reward the

Black revolutionaries

With a throne of black gold

Upon a pedestal of

Black ebony

For all the world to see

ONLY RASTAFARI KNOWS
