In the acoustics of the revolution
Hit songs of true and false comrades
Demons and crocodiles climb up political ladders.
Media gossip downpours, propaganda and myth worship.
Ballot fart and ideological fornication exalted
Political slogan decaying them to toothlessness.
globalisation making their sick blood
pigment. Ignorance served in pubs, churches, and cinemas
Ribs cracked by gonorrhea humor
