Sparkling blackness churns in depths below,
An ocean of magenta Africa
Ethiopia, anomaly, swirling human mystery
Delights untold for hampered majesty.

Jagged rock on shores does bend
Britannia descends!
Plush cauterized sobriety
Ethiopia awake! Africa alacrity!

Nubia ascends solumn mastery
Furore normanorum, thou art at last enthralled.
