Emigrant's Song

I have voted
Severally with my hands
Nothing changes anywhere
Than the bad changes of everyday
I am ready now to vote again
But with my legs.
I am going
To the other side
Cold and calm
Where the white verdure
Is greener than
The black one here
I am going
On a raft
Against the violent sea
Its anger not greater
Than the venom
In my heart
I am a paid volunteer
Driven by the circumstances
Of my fatherland
And my godfather is dead.
