What other name can I borrow greed
To make it mild in the mouth?
Government without humanity
Religion without God
Business without conscience
Democracy without people
Election without voters
The death that kills mother hen never lets its eggs hatch
O! President, O! Government, what have you gained
That you acquired all but have none?
Vanity! Phantasmagoria! What foolish wisdom!
Listen to this resounding voice from a distance
The food that is sweet in the goat’s mouth can kill it
