Jona, as you cut your cake
Remember the poor with whose money
You did that giant cake bake
As you munch a slice
Remember the angry people outside,
Still chewing subsidized lies.
When you drink the wine.
Remember that poverty and diseases
Have bound us with twines.
Still, we wish that you
Have a wonderful birthday,
Yes Sir, we really do.
