i can’t see no vision i’m blinded
Houston in rivers,
the whiteman and blackman.
swimming in a pearl of sot.
looking out! the news, worldwide is about.
but i don’t live there.
i live in Freetown, Sierra Leone
i live in Karachi, Pakistan
i live where the dying are.
i am drowning and i am dying.
my skin is too grey or black,
my pocketbook is too unfilled
Lloyd’s insurance of last resort
will never cover me.
i’m too dirty, polluted, worthless.
I Am the First; soon, you will suffer this way too.
