OUR WOMEN

FROM THE TIME THEY CAME TO OUR FRUITFUL LAND
WE'VE BEEN DEPRIVED BLESINGS FROM GOD'S OWN HAND
BECAUSE OUR CHERISHED LAND HAS BEEN DEFILED
WITH ITS HOPES AND MANY BLESSINGS EXILED-

WHY DO I WEEP TO YOU MY OWN BROTHERS?
CANN'T YOU SEE WHAT THEY'VE DONE TO OUR MOTHERS
AND WIVES? JUST HAVE A LOOK AT THEIT STOMACHS
AND SEE WELL HIDDEN WITHIN-THE CURSED MARKS.

THESE MEN HAVE GONE TO BED WITH OUR WOMEN
EVANGELISTS OR WHAT? OH!WERE THEY SENT 
TO OWN OUR BELONGINGS AND OUR LOVED GOLD
THINGS HAPPENING RIGHT FROM THE DAYS OF OLD?

SOON, WHEN THESE HATED CREATURES ARE WELL GONE,
AFTER HAVING FULFILLED ALL THEIR MISSION,
WE WILL CONTINUE TO LIE DOWN WITH OUR WOMEN
DESTROYING OUR LIVES;WHAT A BAD OMEN-
