indeed, but why the greed?
true, you signed the deed,
have got blood in my hands when there is none, is of no need!
I earn, while cracking open the face of Mother earth, on you, you want me to
call on you anytime I am oppressed,
under your critic and unmerited squalor will I be suppressed!
yes, you are my friend,
your counter would my case end!
never call another friend a thief when he is not,
force him to hold what from him was not caught!
call on you first, I will never win the case,
yourself my friend of what use or base?
friend yet you scare me with your gun,
you see the picture clearly, I will far be gone!
myself you say I am being stubborn,
will force me to pull my shirt I have responsibly worn!
and tell me to get into the van,
have done, you will slap me, and say I belong to a dangerous gan’!
friends because of injustice made their soul case rot in shackles,
tilled the soil with their peeling knuckles!
am scared of,
no mercy, I mean your gun and your cuff!
pillars of home to their early grave,
penny you unjustly crave!
never get the prayers of my people,
you see white, you say no it is purple!
I can count on you,
because I cannot even trust all the things you do.
some friends who are not bad as I have portrayed,
many of us have been denied and betrayed!
our rights and liberty,
from your cruel mediocrity!
your hands than in the hands of men of the underworld,
bars unjustly hurled.
the extortion of my stipend?
living with your cruelty in the dark!
thoughts on you far be gone.
well for us,
to go back to the drawing board and draw a new course!
