Flames of Hope Inside the Amistad


Assaulted by a battalion of furies


That flap their wings


To urge fires of greed and slavery into


Hell fires of the soul


As the ship departs from 


The ‘Gates of No Return’



No! The man from Mende said


The ship will return!


The ship upon the sea that seeks to drown


The bones of those thrown overboard


The ship must return


But the sea betrayed them


The sea, that damned servant of greed!
