Bribery And Injustice!


Bribery and injustice!
With illegal lust in the land of corruption;
But, i will play my song with the muse of the harp!
Telling the people what is right;
If only if they will listen to me.

Bribery and corruption!
Being like a drunkard who is out of control;
But roses are red and violets are blue,
And, it is time to wake up to the truth than,
To die in your sins.

Illegal lust in the land of corruption!
Hanging up like a weak thread;
But, whos is ready to tell them the truth?
For, they've taken falsehood as the way of life;
Which is destroying them along the line.

Your eyes smile peace. The pasture gleams and glooms
