ON THEIR KNEES


On their knees

Ebony and Ivory, cherubim

Guileless, forging bonds

 

On their feet

Ebony and Ivory

Minds turned prisons

 

On the ground

Ebony to ashes

Ivory guilty

 

On their knees

Ebony and Ivory

Infants then, naive to detestation

Ebony before Ivory

Seeking emancipation

Ebony before Ivory

Demanding parity.

 

On their knees

On their feet

Hands in the air

On their knees

On the ground

Ebony to dust

Buried with their pleas.
