Black man

Whenever I see a black man

I feel dead in my soul

Like a corpse

Before the flood of Noah

I wonder why it is so

But deep down my soul

Wails the atrocities of the devil's child

Which I see clearly

Like a dark sky 

Groaning to kiss the earth

With destructive rain at harvest time

Atrocities which I feel

Atrocities which I sense

Like the heat of summer

O black man!

Why baptise with evil

Like the child of Lucifer

O black man!

When will you stop your evil deeds

And gain human dignity?
