(A dead man speaking back)

 

You’re not talking sense!

Don’t give me that, for God’s sake

Tell me something different

Where were you when the black sheep

Stole in from behind and smashed all my eggs?

Where were you when the hangman read my death warrant?

Where were you when the Nei Mulung drank his own urine?

Where were you when rain fell heavily?

But the wretched earth refused to drink its water?

Then we died in a city totally flooded without hay

Even the royal palace lost the race.

 

 

Where I dwell today nothing is dense

Every morning we run around with a black snake

Anyone who refuses has his clothes rent

We sleep on cold cement and eat human flesh just sent

On Sundays we are stood in water muddy and knee-deep

Unless we can bribe with stolen French kegs

One night the guard woke us to ask if anyone could rant

“Rant?” we screamed, bewildered. “Only Youri Gagarine!”

Each night the drunken prison administrator calls us smelling heavily

He tells us this is the world of Famlah where there is no godfather

We were sent here to suffer because we refused to betray

So never shall we return to earth or anywhere else for solace.
