Tell those tyrant politicos—

all those leaders vile!—

who cause the poor masses gross woes,

and wink at our many sorrows,

filling us with bile…

tell those chameleons—friendly foes—

who gained our trusts, who gained our votes

through promises empty, hollow—

through their tortoise wiles…

tell those light-fingered hands that knows

deft skill in fiddling funds… oh no!—

look, tell those corrupt politicos,

’t wouldn’t always continue so…

It’s but for a while!
