In My Country.

In my country, flies are more valuable than lives... For a bread; this big city has lost its breath; and left her people in a fret;

For a bread,
this big city has lost its breath,
and left her people in a fret,
and a mother in regret.
she couldn't even a coat for cold get

All the leaders swallow is flesh;
flesh mixed with ketch,
and then they all belch,
coming out and looking all fresh.

Promises and baits here and there,
mixed with cries and fears.
Nobody knows where safety is;
Patiently waiting but the end is a hiss.
