Officials Of Our Land

Policeman in the traffic island has no head
He has an extra hand behind to take bribe
The cop in the station has no eyes
He has an extra limb, a lathy, to beat
The judge in the chamber has no ears
He swallows the justice with his trunk
The priest in the temple has no soul
He has a puppet on his brow to mock
The legislator has no heart

[Hata Bildir]
