Vultures with Beaded Crowns


Bald vultures wears beaded crowns
The crowns make them like clowns
They stole the crowns
And forcefully wears these crowns
Because it does belong to them
They descreate the crowns
Using their status to intimidate,
Pillage, ravage, suck, ruin,
Cannibalise and destroy the land
Filtering away our joint resouces
Constantly devouring our land
Till the land becomes infertile
The vultures are in power now
They are rooted on the throne now
Breeding and multiplying virulently
Leaving our land jaded
They soar with our wealth
But the innocents stinks
And our land sinks
