…………. Money Mongers …………..
They cap black with powerless rifles,
Standing shamelessly, picking papers coated with red cotton,
Ten oh!! Just ten! Do they stand shamelessly shameless picking pickles like ruthless vultures,
Say No! Just say No!! They shall whip your butt till one flap falls to a dance.
Walking large like baboonized guerillas,
But…. hey!! here comes the hoodlums,
They sprout their necked turble to a distant sprint,
Will you ask? Is this Olympics.
But they cramp the hopeless to drink to terror,
Oh! They strip the helpless to dance to horror,
I hate them wearing dark like the devil of doom,
Oh! Money mongers kissing shame to romance fame.
Abeg ooo!!!! Can’t this stop?
Only can pebbles pant to its glorious peanuts,
It is this country that vanquish my anguish burn,
I hate our police….
