Protests screamed out loud
or howled in silence
words from Black truth delve
into multicoloured hearts—

find us whites all wanting
damned by arrogance presumed at birth
dear goddess set each one free

our Black kin are nearer to our souls
than owners who claim control
of everything. We must bend knees
honour but not extol suffering
we must not glorify abuse or war.
