​When kids are going hungry
Homeless on the streets
Why do you spend so much on war?
If sovereignty is so important 
Why do you allow poverty right at your door?

They know beggars don’t get to choose

They preach parity and fairness 
And then increase the gap
Between the richest and poor
They deny the bare necessities
To millions in the land
While syphoning off more wealth 
To their friends offshore

The stench of corruption
Is now standard daily news
Bare faced lies and cover ups
To contain and confuse
And all the while they know they cannot lose
Cos beggars don’t get to choose


Beggars Can't be Choosers
