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.
