Pomegranate and Peach

John Brown with strong determination sent shock waves through this nation

Sparking Lincoln's proclamation releasing Africans who had been enslaved.

Toussaint Louverture's children, Nat Turner, David Walker, Marcus Garvey, Elijah Muhammad and El Hajj Malik El Shabazz bequeathed

Through actions and speech the testicularity and backbones needed to reach

Teach and resurrect their people from internment in southern ameriKKKan graves

The Sun's rays reach the roots of both the pomegranate and the peach.

Not even the despair filled devil is denied the mercy of Allah's reach.

Publicly baring witness and keeping up the fight both day and night

Bowing down performing
the five dutifully remaining steadfast

Until arrives the time when crowds flock in mass to the light of Islam

Emulating a celestrial constellation, rise up high you mighty nation

Lofty like a bolt of lighting flung free from the grasp of

The Lord and substainer of all of creation. Master of all nations
