I'm Not Hungry


I'm not hungry and,
I don't need a penny from you;
But, i only want to keep you straight on this love.
I'm not hungry and,
I don't need a pin from you;
But, i only want to help you to behave like a human being.
In, indeed!
The old man;
Bile, mobile!
The old woman;
But, under the laws.
Greed, greediness!
With deceitful lusts around the world;
But, i only wanto to help you and guide you on with the laws.
Hatred and fighting!
In the land of your muse;
With negative minds,
But, i only want ot help you to behave like a human being.
Learn to repent!
With the spirit of your mind;
For, the laws are always around us.
