Marcus Mosiah Garvey Poems >>
The Great (?) White Man
Adam, Eve and all the rest of men
Threw away the chart of holy life,
And becoming Satan's cruel children,
Waste the world in ceaseless strife.
Europe's sons are foremost now in craft.
Man designs to crust the higher self:
With their politics and racial graft
They sail o'er the world in hunt of pelf.
Mussolini's creed of grab and take
Was at first the Roman's highest law;
But, right now all life is set to stake
If the brutal human stroke has flaw.
Day by day we see the white man's sin
Making all the world a living hell,
Not a place for good to enter in,
No, except through burning shot and shell.
When the God of all made thinking man,
Placing him on earth to dwell in love,
Angels hoped to see the human clan
Blessing God, the gracious King above.
Fight to kill, is watchword of the day:
White men have no other human urge:
They have ceased to worship God, to pray;
But they glory in the sinful surge.
Robbing all the lands beyond the sea,
Making slaves and beating children, too,
White men claim that they are great and free,
Much more great than ravished me and you.
