The State of A nation.

They have plundered the gold,

They have plundered the silver,

A nation ones so full of treasures have been plundered.

Plundered by men entrusted to guard the treasury vault.

Whom upon their conscience and charater 

In the name of God and all things glorified.

Avowed to govern least.

By virtue decreed 

To be and not to be.

Just as familiar as an oath.

Oh! they are not incapable of breaking their promise,

Oath taking was a cloak.

To trigger our our believes.

Blasphemers, cons and shylocks

They are not committed to carry out their duties wholeheartedly

In the letter and in the spirit of all applicable rules of ethics and cannons of conduct.

But the Lord has taken account of their vows.

They have forced us down the garden path.

What was ones deemed a worthy nation now drowns in the cesspit of luxury.

Deprived and impoverished by unlawful acts 

Such as stealing and looting in public offices.

There is enough to go round, enough to keep.

More than enough to reward with, enough to be stolen.

What belongs to you is whatever you can take and keep.

As long as you first get it all.
