Madness about everything,
Craziness about nothing,
The complacency of the aboriginals.
Unlike the tail-wagging syndrome
Of the black man, a hyperbole!
The truth of nature prevails.
Yes, upon their claims of immunity.

“We taught you the how and why of life,”
The songs of the humbug pioneers hear!
For every claim they claim to claim,
Has but a counter claim to be claimed.
What we do we do in vain for vain glory,
And those who taught us to build and merry,
Have also tutored us to kill and bury,
To destroy even our faith, assumed a fake.

Bid the Town Crier spread the word,
Although we eat the intestine, we detest the dung,
Our men marry our women and
Husbands know their wives, their wives!
We bring life and celebrate life, don’t we?
From where cometh this madness of 
Celebrating the feat of mass death?
Now our forefathers cry for the land to be appeased,
This abomination unknown to us brought to us.
I hear the requiem song of fauna and flora,
Echoed by those affected by the pollutants.
They howl the dirge indeed as a hullabaloo.
Extinction threatens existence and nature!
Pollution pollutes even the polluters of nature,
Then the polluted becomes the pollutant.
But if therefore there is immunity of the polluter,
And the polluter remains yet unpolluted,
Let all in one voice wail… Retributive justice, come!
