One of Ras Historian's greatest priority
Was his great struggle against black poverty
This he did for his African race
As he worked so hard all over the place
To make sure that food were on black people's
As long as they were living and able
So he caused them to be organized together
And worked in Unity like sisters and brothers
And because of his great encouragement
They learned to create their own employment
Which was something they had to do
As better living conditions they all pursued
They learned to work in Unity
To help to care for their families
So they really did not hesitate
To nourish their business and economic state
Day and night they travelled over Seas
So that they could have their own cup of tea
Also to have their own clothes and food
And to cultivate some very balance moods
Ras Historian helped with all this progress
He helped to bring them all this success
He helped them to help their very own people
By using self determination as their vehicle
This Poem is written as a humble Tribute
And this is nothing but the naked truth
Ras Historian was a brother and a friend
So now as a Poet I will put away my pen.
