senators come home


Senators come home
For what you have acquired
seventy percent is ours
 Come home!
From where you are dogmatic followers
  Come home!
For we can't vote you again
Come home!
 From where truths are bitters
Senators! Come home 
For we tired of kleptomaniac representatives 
Come home! 
 For money is thy lord in that chamber
Come home! From where thee drag thy selfish interest
 Come home! For what thee loot are enough
Come home! Stop using our treasure
To build thy palace and mansion
 Come home! We want a better nation
Come home! We, thee and thy children are equal
 Withdraw thy children from that Oxford and Harvard
  Let them be in class with many of us..

My bro. Abdul, I'm with you! They are useless in my country. They should just go home!
