Living shadows,
Successful theory
Isn’t over feed nuclear
Heart rob.

Internet for show
Order data from home,

Save our soul,
Begging away potentials
Supported by the market

Gorilla’s in suit,
Dusty black briefcase
Kidnapped files of loot,

Cabal tames the food
Consuming banana
Sending to me decade tap root,
In profit, he’s regulating my people.

Africa in geography,
Rich green
Timely rain impregnate seeds.
Scavenging cattle’s dunk
To make trees.

A million voices
Billionaire beggars,
Welcome to the
United states of hun-garri.

Ordinary people
Bicycle engine crippled,

Two faced destiny
Lobby or
Prostrate for secretaries,

Liberty is a cage in
Spotting the greedy.
