Borrow Borrow

BORROW BORROW Mebo mebo Borrow borrow nation of the world They cant stop The wont stop The whole nation is plunged in debt The nation never stops borrowing The world keeps lending The agony is never ending Billions today Trillions tomorrow But we still need more Pouring money into meaningless pursuits If a nation plunges her people into debts One expects developments But none in sight Please what animal is accused again? Okay lets go for another two billion dollars This time we use it for farming Along the way An antelope will come and eat the money An antelope building a multi-billionaira mansion in his village Or one adding to his fleet of cars At the end when appropriation is done Only one percent development is recorded Shall we go for another loan? This time for education Pay educators well Or continue the same tradition? Meeeh! Educators are good Because tomorrow A snake will do the swallow And we continue promising everybody a better life. Shall we go for another loan?

We do like to borrow our way out of problems. The only thing being is. The next generation usually pays for it.
