CORRUPT VERSES

I.
You take the front seat in my church
You take our traditional titles
You are esteemed and honored
You, I run to for help

Corruption!
Do I really hate you?
Or I hate myself?

II.
Now is the time to rise
A sunshine shower
Won’t last an hour
Rain before seven
Clear by eleven

Match wind and April shower
Bring forth May flower
So true, that Wishes
Won’t wash dishes

III.
Fight without pretending
That makes you real
Challenging without offending
That makes you a man
Oppose without defending
That makes you patriotic
Accept your fault without offence
That makes you teachable

IV.
The giraffe stands taller than the rest
The Eagle never flocks with feeble birds
The lion roars and the wood trembles
Distinguish yourself and feast with nobles.

V.
To be healthy, wealthy and wise
And live without compromise.
Hate corruption instead of ourselves!
