Johnny Cash
I'll prove to you, man in black,
The clouds above are black as sack;
Black as night, black as hell;
Black as earthy coal, as well;

Black as all the suits you own;
Black as Satan's crooked throne;
Black as swans from distant lands;
Black as murder's guilty hands;

Black as fear, recoiled from all;
Black as lust, in wanton thrall;
Black as greed, devouring dross;
Black as sloth, reclined across;

Black as hate, attacking foe;
Black as wrath's blood stains on snow;
Black as spoils from orgy's spree;
Black as my envious eyes for thee.
