Permed Prayers: On My Knees, I Set My Case!

On my knees, I set my case
That I may not be altruistic

I pray for the deliverance of my people
From the love of money
And other associated products

On this long and rough road
I amass blessings from the most High

I pray for the mothers
For their tired backs
And their bleeding hands

For the whole nation
I give my offer of prayer
That the arrow of God trembles at the gates of light

I cannot contain my jealousy
The secret thing is much endured
Imperative, it is a watchword
A matter of national love

And to my shaky conviction
I search for a graveyard

I give kudos, to the martyrs of spiritual racism
For our labour shall never be in vain
