Stumped by Trump

Petrified of Putin, and Oh! Hallelujah… please save us from Zuma


Anonymous, the Illuminati…. Not even a cup of Tea

Nothing’s going to save us, from this debauchery

Give me a village, free from those who pillage

Where the butcher is also the baker, and the townsfolk pray to their maker


Who lurks in the stillness?

Who presents the smoke and mirrors?

Who is the real puppet master of terror?


With power comes responsibility for those you don’t consider

You’re selling your soul, to the highest bidder…
