Eternal Immunity

This is not a joke. Some dictators

Want to have a referendum

And then amend the constitution

To incorporate eternal immunity

They want to forever rule by decree

For life. What an obvious aberration

We believe in one vote, one bum

And one day, all perpetrators

Will pay for their scandalous crimes

If it’s not on earth but definitely in hell

We simply have to wait for the last bell

To yowl all the disgusting slimes

To head to where exist no borders.


Eternal immunity is a serious stuff

That’s wishful thinking. Death will be rough

For everyone, especially the dictators

The backstabbers and the coward killers

Everybody will die one day

Nobody is permanent or eternal

Without breath, there’s no stay

Everything that we see is ephemeral

Please behave. Please don’t laugh

Nobody is on earth for life

And a country governed by unconstitutional heisters

Will under no condition prosper or burgeon like flowers.
