Prince
   With tied legs
That same
   We come before
Regalia
   Your tower of babel
Put on
   As join men
In homestead
   Our traded know-hows
When you ‘re…
   We ‘ve a mastered
Foxy steps
   Come to a-mastered
Plunged us neck deep
   Before you ‘re watery
Into embattled slavery
   Presence
Of musketeers
   In total subjectivity
Whose rump
   Till tides commeth
You dazed
   Our mastery
On whispering palms
   We celebrate
Of yours
   Our exiled
Heart of darkness
   Of poverty
In streetlights
Ridden fortunes
On pot-holed highways
   Hurriedly left
Fussing our paths
   Into cities of refuge
Where three footpaths meet
   Where earthlings
Until dawns day
   Among equal earthlings
With poisoned arrows
Click on wine glasses
You no longer
   On cosmetic horsemanship
Can emit
Hose whipping us out
Our apes manship
Hitherto home
With zest
Outside greener pastures
Now our bedding
Made us lie
In healthful bliss
