linton-kwesi-johnson Walter Rodney


Walter Rodney (Georgetown, 23 marzo 1942 – 13 giugno 1980) è stato uno storico e politico guyanese. È noto per le sue posizioni anti-colonialiste e per la sua dura critica della condotta delle nazioni europee nei confronti delle colonie africane e americane, ed è considerato uno dei padri del panafricanismo.

Nel 1980 Rodney si candidò per le elezioni politiche della Guyana, ma fu assassinato in un attentato dinamitardo.
You nuh see how de clou' them jus' came sit upon me dream
Came sit upon me dream like a dark silk screen
A dark silk screen over de vision I had seen
The vision I had seen, the vision I had seen

So me say that Walter Radni was a victim of hate
Someone say that him gone thru heaven's gate
Someone that Walter Radni shouldn't tek up his true weight
An' go carry 'pon him back like him de weary man a rock

But look how de clou' dem jus' came sat upon me dream
Came sit upon me dream like a shout or a scream
A shout or a scream or a really ugly scene
That awake me from the dream an' alert me to the scheme

So me say that Walter Radni was a prisoner of fate
Someone say that him gone thru de hero's gate
Someone say that Walter Radni couldn't tek his true weight
So him tek it off him back an' go pick it 'pon him lap
An' go fall in a trap, an' Sam Burnham get it drop

But look how me dream come jus' get blown to smithereen
Came blown to smithereen ina de miggle of the dream
Miggle of the dream before de people dem come in
People dem come in, the people dem come in

So me say that Walter Radni was no shark fi de sea
An' all that him did wan' was fi set him people free
Wi' de workers an' de peasants him should a corporate
But like a fish to de hook, him go bite 'pon Burnham bait

You nuh see how me dream come jus' get blown to smithereen
An' blown to smithereen ina de miggle of the dream
Miggle of the dream before de really crucial scene
The really crucial scene when the people dem come in
