Modern Office Injustice


The impertinence of the modern office
And all those who carry out injustice
Has contributed to him losing his Mojo
Now he bears no interests in the joys of London Soho

He has only tears and sorrow
Saving his strength for tomorrow
And don't ask him if he is boozing
Nor ask him if he is cruising
Only his disappointment is right now oozing

Has he lost his Mojo?
Has he lost his drive?
Or lost his glow because of negative flows?
Has he lost his instincts to survive?

And the answer is 'No, No and No'
Don’t take his silence as a knockdown blow
Justice will come even though it is sometimes slow
We read it and we see it each day on television
The fight, a repeated rehearsal and revision of editions

When the strong become momentarily weak
The weak gain strength that makes you feel sick
You've countless nights when you can't sleep
The only question that is pondering on his lips

Is, has he lost his Mojo?
Has he lost the will?
Will this feeling of hate grow?
When will justice itself instill?

Who knows how the story goes!
The impertinence of the modern office
I say 'Shame to all those
Who partake in carrying out injustice! '
