BKB, brothers kill brothers.
The happiness in wickedness,
Rejoices for evil practices.
For African leaders; the sharpened nice knives.
Why do blacks kill blacks?

BKB, brothers kill brothers.
The dividend of the few,
Traumatic memory for the majority.
For African leaders; the poisons acting food.
Why do blacks kill blacks?

BKB, brothers kill brothers
Democracy of the less numbered,
The autocracy of the multitude.
For African leaders; monkeys aiding humans.
Why do blacks kill blacks?

BKB, brothers kill brothers.
Statically benefits for the lazy minds,
Mathematical satisfaction of the privileged.
For African leaders, no measures to indiscipline.
Why do black kill black?

BKB, brothers kill brothers.
Sciences of odd ideal reputation,
Art for ill frames of minds,
For African leaders; subject to nepotism.
Why do blacks kill blacks?

I weep, my pen also weep.
For the ink ceased bleeding my record papers,
For my hand freezes in holding the golden pen again,
Then, my mind asked me?
Dear writer, when will you stop writing
About the usual actions of the VIPs?
The masters oppressor;
For the Vagabonds In Power.
