    HAITI ON MY MIND
    By Andre Austin

    I tell you Haiti they both will die, (Pat & Rush)
    Each one at the hand of his own brother. Their
    Deaths are near. There will be corpses everywhere,
    Corpses piled on corpses, men struck down
    By earthquake and concrete falling, and there will be mourning
    And wailing in the land of Haiti.

    Poorest city of Haiti, will be buried with them
    if no one heeds my words. Far better for Haiti
    That none of the brood of the Doc’s should live either
    In this land as citizens, let alone as kings and princes
    A father’s sacred curse possesses them;
    They will not destroy this city either, neither words of bigots.

    But because
    The good here outweighs the evil, one way out not between light man v dark man
    One way only, remain to us. What that
    Way is, it is not safe for me to say (pure love)
    And it will be bitter to those whom fate gives no heart
    The power to preserve the city of Haiti
    Comes from love from below and above.

    I’am in a rage.

    The VooDoo priets will make an image
    Of Rush and Pat to proceed on
    with death

    For me, may they live but may Haiti be free of them.

    Very impassioned piece!
