“Maroon and Build For Self” gets its name from the poem “You go along with it” in the pamphlet. In this poem a lyrical verse immortalizes the title:
“Beware this miserable neighbor
Maroon and Build For Self
For they lack a noble nature
They are savages in stealth”
There’s much wisdom in this verse. “Beware this miserable neighbor” references the teachings of Merikare. “Maroon and Build For Self” references the first racial separatists of the diaspora, the Maroons, and instructs on what we must do. “For they lack a noble nature” speaks upon the false impressions we get of European and Asian people. “They are savages in stealth” brilliantly and rhythmically summarizes these people. This depth of analysis also explicates why poetry is better than prose.
