Prophet, pray tell, what do you see?
I see an end to evil and its ills,
I see a day when all men can be free,
I see a day when we’ll all live and let live,
I see for our nation leaders who won’t wait for us to ask before they give.
Prophet, pray tell, when will these be?
It will be the day when life no longer amuse the hyenas so that they stop laughing,
It will be the day when the frog’s voice becomes so clear that it stops croaking,
It will be the day when the snake is no longer irritated so that it stops hissing,
It will be the day when the sea and the seashore fight so hard that they stop kissing.
Prophet, pray tell, what can we do?
You must not bow out or give up the fight,
You must not pander to evil’s threat and its fright,
For darkness you see, must not prevail against light,
No matter how dark it may seem now, an end will come to the night.
