We all talk against itA
Make wonderful speechesB
On the necessity to breakC
Its yoke and strangleholdD
-
Daily we talkE
Of recovered lootsB
And daily the recovered lootsB
Are relooted by no otherF
-
Than those who recovered themG
And we set kangaroo panelsB
Upon panels and committeesB
Upon committees to recoverF
-
The recovered lootsB
And the vicious cycle goesB
On and on while the nationH
Slides further and furtherF
-
Down the slope into the abyssB
Of poverty and the massesB
Groan under the weightI
Of a bogus leadership that eatsB
-
And grows fat as the massB
Of the people shrink with starvationH
We talkE
We decryJ
-
We probeK
But corruption thrivesB
And fights backL
Cos we fight invisible corruptionH
-
We never fight the corruptM
Instead the corrupt fightN
Corruption with kid glovesB
And make it resistantO
