The Black Time Has Come by Alisonomi

Larry Busacca, Getty Images for CoachellaThe rise of the Black Sun

Innocent like a charcoal

Bitting mercilessly like cold

Ravaging force of the harmattan

But too long silenced like the death


In the past voluntarily subdued

Made to appear like a villain

Sold in the markets like cows

Dragged to plantations in the north

But always rebounded like a ball

His language and culture vilified

His kids made to doubt themselves

And live and fight like betta splendens

Though guided home like Colobopsis explodens


Time has come for you to rise

You black children of the Mother Earth 

And face your destiny like lions

Sight, fight, bite and shed your light

Pick yourselves up and walk head high


For the Black Time has indeed Come!
