Darfur's another test of whether we
Are ready to become a sovereign world,
Restraining with state violence a state
From genocide and other crimes of hate,
Unleashing thunderbolts from heaven hurled
Right through the savage heart of sovereignty.

Dirty truths devour clean designs,
A process that turns dreams to spit-out bones.
Remember to be wary of the good,
For what one does is rarely what one would,
Uniting love with skulls heaped up like stones,
Reading story books with snakes for spines.
