Our government is bad…
they should be stoned!

My nose is bad;
it should be toned!
Before pointing to a mucus-ridden child

Our textbook is #2500 and #1000 for transport
Water now costs an arm and a leg
Stones are now scarce on earth
All indications of scam419

Our leaders are corrupt;
we are the corruption that inflicted them.
Olè gbée, olè gbàá!
