No Racist Rat Is Indeed Above The Law

No racist rat is indeed above the law

Justice must be blind, fair, equal and raw

For all, in a democratic society

We are angry and fed-up with the glaring hypocrisy

Where the poor are treated wrongfully or unfairly

And the rich get away absolutely scot-free

With heinous crimes, with murder and theft

Many innocent people are put to death

In arbitrary, prejudicial and unusual fashion

And the red-handed culprits are, in their mansion

Or their tower, enjoying life to the fullest

We long for the day, when no pests

Or no rat is seen or perceived as being above the law

We want justice to be blind, fair, equal, and raw

No, today is not the first day of spring

Or the first of April. Ring the bells, keep ringing.
