Take Me To The Mines - Poem by Silence Dogood

Take me to the mines
Take me away.
Take me to the mines.
Let me fadeaway.

Im black so im nothing.
I dont have any rights.
Im black so im nothing.
Different from the whites.

I am a slave of this country.
So I surely will die.
I am a slave of this country.
Who deserves only lies.

Take me to the mines.
Take me away.
Take me to the mines.
Let me fadeaway.
