The white man call himself civilized,
Cause he know how to take over,
The white man come to pillage my village,
Now he tell me I have to bend over.
No I don’t like the white man up in me,
He rape my people as he rape my country,
Everything I love and cherish, he try to take away,
We will be rid of him, soon come the day.
Somehow, every budget day here reminds me of this song. Doesn’t help that our local MP is rather complacent about issues relevant to his constituency (since living here I know of 3 pubs permanently shut within town and others through our areas Pints of View newsletter).
