Fon Tuma (Cameroon)

 Indigo Timing

 

 

We could be twins

crystal-like rock we found

between the strata in the ground

We kiss as we swim.

 

"I'm not racial" she sings

Burn before speaking

Race you to the beach

See how my sword gleams.

 

With world domination

on the line,

Who could care a thing

for human rights?

 

We could be twins

my lover and I

We, consumers of Cush

from the ancient kingdom

 

- of Cush.

Versión español de Karenina Osnaya

 

Podríamos ser gemelos

Como cristal de roca que encontramos

Entré los estratos del suelo

Nos besamos y nadamos.

 


“No soy racial” ella canta

Que se quema antes de hablar

Carrera hasta la playa

Mira mi espada brillar.

 

Con dominación mundial

de premio

A quien le importa

los derechos humanos?

 

Podríamos ser gemelos

mi amante y yo

Nosotros, consumidores de Cush

 

del viejo reino

- de Cush.
