Marcus Garvey - Rise Of The Negro
 
To rise and demonstrate en masse

Is way to make the oppressor think,

And so the Negro in his Class,

Sends forth his message to the King.



The King, a symbol of the State,

Sends forth his men to find what's wrong,

And back comes word of awful fate

On which the lives of men do hang.



The State assumes its task at last,

And makes an effort to amend

The wrongs that reigned throughout the past

By giving heed, though laws defend.


Words of Marcus Garvey
