pestilence and politics
pandemic and plague
with a half million down
and society to go
they block the shot
and fake them out
they talk a lot
no truth to shout
that forever reign
a wish to steal
pass by the doorman
death on your heals
deciding factors tied
how much you got?
kneel on the neck
democracy’s not
a basket of goodies
tied in a bag
representing in hoodies
deciding the flag
the money flows thick
green with white tinge
the darker the funds
the lighter the skin
apartheid still fails
but always gets tried
any port in a storm
promise always to lie
