Thuggery

Threatening priceless life, Murdering rival's wife. The meanest of strife, For election victory staining the knife. In the white man's world, somewhat unthinkable And if it's their energy ship, assuredly sinkable. A pillaging of property And pushing of political opponent to poverty, The electorate rubbishing his vote: With criminals dumped in the same boat Via rainy flows Of body - damaging blows Always offering indecent job To the muscularly strong From the unemployed throng Leaving democracies to sob.
