The Wretched Of The Earth

Let the tossed of the lillies plunged their crimson
To their shameless fancy faces
That to pocket thirty silver coins is a pride
And asked our mouths to seal the truth.

They are the wretched of the earth
They that swim money to the lees
The MPs who tossed white lillies in red garments.

Let the learned parrots defend their lots
To their fancy faceless innocence
That the moot is their house of pride
And asked the people to mute no words
When we have asked where is your learned pride?

They are the wretched of the earth
Thay that stand between truth and lies
The learned parrot in the courts.

Let the demigod becomes their gods
To their faked manifestoes
That politics is their skill
And asked the people to go to hell
When we have asked where are your flowing milk of words?

They are the wretched of the earth
They that take ambitious towards heaven
They that build castle in the air
The alagbadas who come to us with many mouths.

Standing here together,
Your eyes
pouring cement over my feet.

Usually words are exploding out.
Veils flying up all around.

Now Jealous of the way a birds song

floats along.

The voice in my head asking
",Will I get out alive my love?"

My Love oh my Dove
The day that our love 
would find its way
From my heart into your soul
Embrace It until it's wings grow tall
And It's legs cease to crawl
Then we shall stroll
Serene celestial shore
With you in my arms oh my Love

My love

O mother of affections,
Heartthrob of my spirit
Lovebird of a darling soul;
like a river, you let
Love flow through my heart
O my love.

You are my pain curing,
You are my thoughts hearing,
You are my progress rising,
That's why soul of mine is good..
You are that person who blessed me like a tactor,
You are my bene factor,
And don't let me lose hope,
That's why soul of mine is good..

When I saw him, my charming prince.
The burden that filled my heart,
melted away. At the sound of his angelic voice. Ho, my lovely charming prince.

A sweet sensation, I can sense the flavour.
As the butterfly, flying in my stomach.
Aroma and splendor of a beautiful live well spent.
