So Be It

Beauty! Though black, but not black in the heart
 And wide like a noon sun, her name shall grow
 Like a pretty wind, her name shall roll
 While like an ocean, her name shall flow
 And come foes shall turn to vulture's meat
 Like a wood termites descend on its ply.

 Queen! Like a town train, her name shall rail
 While like a siren ship, her name shall sail
 Like a brilliant bird, her name shall fly
 And top like a mountain, her name shall rise
 For the sake of her name, dear drum shall beat
 Like a flux cloud of ice, light and dark.

 Africa! Black and beauty brain the earth
 Like a lightning coal that leave in the dark.
