Black Pride - Poem by udoh etido

We are thieves of the night;
no one ever dear see us smile;
We are thieves with different lives;
our guns shall pierce your eyes.

We are covered with hideous masks;
we are here to steal your pride;
your women will cease to breath today;
our hood will thrust their ways.

We are glad thieves of the night;
we tread under the moon's light;
dont despise our mischievous ways;
it is all we have to save our face.

For long we've been trodden upon;
feeding on strange dusts;
our lives knew no wealth;
our kindred drew from strange wells.

We are strange thieves of the night;
plundering from house to house;
We are thieves bearing no smile;
our eyes darkened by the Demon inside.

Though you may cause and hate;
that will not spare your gate;
Though you may rain the worst;
our guns will ever stand tall.

We are fast thieves in the night;
our lives lay double as we slide;
Our bags shall be filled today;
even the rain has no say.

We are strange thieves of the night;
horse envy our flight;
we do not come in peace;
our aim is to only steal.

We are glad thieves of the night;
never envy our past.

We are cheerful thieves of the night;
giving to the poor from the rich's hands.
