Pathetic Brazil



From a socialist form of rule,

Entered into an era of doom and ridicule

Through sham elections of evil

The great land, now pathetic Brazil


Dictatorship is looming large

With the far-right on the seize

Slamming struggle of the downtrodden

Bolsonaro might tread the path which was, till now, not taken


People of the land beware!

Prepare for prompt action, be aware

Of the future vulnerable

And policies of repression undesirable






Tears with gas



Poor immigrants

Travelling with patience

In the hope of finding solace

Instead shed tears

From the vicious gas


Poor Mexicans

Suffering from hunger and disease

Pushed back mercilessly

By apathetic regime ruthlessly


While women and children wail

Unable to withstand the policy evil

US ruler blames Democrats

Leaving aside his disastrous facts


Their labor the backbone of economy

The foundation for welfare of the country

And yet, they are left to their fate

From an autocratic desperate supporter of hate
