Flames of Hope Inside the Amistad
Assaulted by a battalion of furies
That flap their wings
To urge fires of greed and slavery into
Hell fires of the soul
As the ship departs from
The ‘Gates of No Return’
No! The man from Mende said
The ship will return!
The ship upon the sea that seeks to drown
The bones of those thrown overboard
The ship must return
But the sea betrayed them
The sea, that damned servant of greed!
