Money can buy anything
But doesn’t really mean something
Money can buy bungalow
But not a home for a widow
Money can buy a rank
But not a good tongue
Money can buy blood to longer life
But not a life itself
Money can buy arms to impede harm
But not a charm to the orphans
Money can buy war material
But not a freedom of immortal
Money can buy independence
But not liberty of minds
Money can hamper Sulu self-government
But not sovereignty from the people’s conscience
Because of money Sulu Nation suffers
So please don’t use money to help rebuild Sulu after bombings!
Isn't it a total freedom?
That Sulu's really aimed
Since without independence
Seeking for freedom has no end!
Dedicated to the defenders of Justice and Freedom of Sulu Nation.
