When the old junk man Death
Comes to gather up our bodies
And toss them into the sack of oblivion,
I wonder if he will find
The corpse of a white multi-millionaire
Worth more pennies of eternity,
Than the black torso of
A Negro cotton-picker.

KYSYMYS

Kun vanha jätemies kuolema
tulee keräämään ruumiitamme
heittääkseen ne unohduksen säkkiin,
mahtaakohan hän löytää
valkoisen monimiljonäärin ruumiin, joka ansaitsee
jonkin pennin verran enemmän ikuisuutta
kuin mustan puuvillanpoimijan
maallinen tomumaja?
