Pay and Use
Justice loves injustice
Doctor loves disease
Foreman loves damages
Livelihood for the sages.
I cry for justice bold, sold
In deaf ear for years old.
Justice or my lawyer, unjust
Put off hearing, file in dust.
Democracy or Bureaucracy
Suffocate in ugly Autocracy.
Political labour; unions cruel
Compel the subjects crawl.
Equality, freedom, justice
Sweet for poster slogans
Pay and use roads lead us
Pitiably to the island Mess
Of Fuss, hiss; kiss of miss
As frogs spring over Bliss.
