Marcus Garvey - Little Minds
October 26, 1927
 
The little minds that're in the world you know

Are makers of most troubles that you see;

So small in vision they will ever sow

Confusion over land and foreign sea:

In politics they reign supreme and great,

To fool the innocent and rob their rights,

Thus spreading o'er the land vile human hate,

To end in death and wasteful battle flights.



So selfish are the politicians now

That neither soul nor body need not hope,

If to their ways and schemes you do not bow

With cheer, to fall in line with partr dope:

These rascals have in hand the right of way,

So gained by fraud and many studied tricks,

And then, to keep the populace at bay,

They threaten all good men with "legal bricks."



No wonder then the world is gone to hell,

For good men have no place to move nor sit;

This needs no vision of a William Tell,

For you can feel or look just straight at it:

A wonderful reform for all must be,

To save the world for good, and make men right;

There must be liberty for you and me,

For this, all sober minds should strive and fight.
