Queen passed away King holds the sway
His jack of hideous hegemony
O’er nations each a castaway
Flaunting with pride their agony!
Once stigma now a dilemma
A dream to be a republic
Entangled in an enigma
Rebellion of a pent public!
Is still some pride to be crucified
On a White man’s mast a race downcast
More than them we ourselves have lied
“We are the privileged slaves of past!”
When will they erase the Union Jack
From the ethos of their soul servile
There’s nothing left to look back
Still Union Jack Flaps On The Isle!
