May I sip from the calabash of truth
And spit on the lies which lie like parcelled beauty
In the minds of those with power hands of command?
May I step on the heart of deceit
As truth blocks gates of ears which lies have VVIP tickets to
On a trip to trip common sense?
May I step on the claws of the devilish eagle
To save the skin of the fragile bird who seeks
To open the gates of locked freedom?
Give me the power!
Please give me the power to give eggs of piety
The back of the tortoise
Stubborness of the goat
Strength of the eagle
Wisdom of the ant
Beauty of the swan
Pride of the peacock
Meekness of the sheep
Obedience of the dog
Hard work of the horse
And the love of the dove
To save our land
To save this land from drowning in the seas of selfishness
