Totem-Léopold Sédar Senghor



I must hide in my innermost veins
The ancestor whose stormy hide is shot with lightning and thunder
My animal protector, I must hide him
That I may not break the barriers of scandal:
He is my faithful blood that demands fidelity
Protecting my naked body against
Myself and the scorn of luckier races
