Maroon Invasion


The Suriname Maroon population

Almost doubled in the last four years

So official counts show

They are moving into urban areas

Causing severe social problems

And excessive criminality

But let us not forget

That their ancestors had the guts

To fight slave masters

Fleeing deep into the jungle

Many lately driven away

From their tribal lands

By exploitation and civil war

Now it is time to move into power

And take what is rightfully theirs
