You are one of the reasons Why they inflate their quote If you had seized the seasons Good men could have had your vote You are one of the reasons Why our sweet land has gone sour in waste Here is one of your multiple treasons You aid corruption just to suit your taste You are one of the reasons we wedge weighty wrath Bombs daily detonate like fickle fireworks far north You decided to do nothing but shut your mouth So they took our weary sail south You are one of the reasons the land is inflicted with rape Overflowing in abundance yet you mong like a greedy ape Alas our land is grey and old but not due And it hurts me to know that I am also you.
