There is a statue of a man so high,
Upon the oriels it has been set
All for the joy of every passersby
Lest any of them ever once forget...
That Cecil Rhodes he came and conquered all,
In Africa he shone eugenic's light,
And all the glories of that world made fall
Because for him it was just white is right.
And so he went down there and stole away,
All that he could from each and every nation
With little time to kneel in thanks and pray,
For unscrupulous colonisation.
And so we live in evil's shadow now,
Hoping that we can make amends somehow.
