Against the Adanis and Ambanis of the world

ambani adani

I’ve seen the faces of those who work for you
Your money is made on the backs you broke
Of their blood, sweat, and tears
And cheap labour
I have seen the agony on their faces
Smelled the cheap liquor they are forced to imbibe to forget
As their women struggle and their children grimace
As they lay down for you your 5G and internet cables
With no one to question the roads despoiled
As they lay down their lives for you, no noble sacrifice
For you to expand your clout and kingdom
How long do you think your glory will last
Or your pomp? It never will.
Though I am a peaceful revolutionary, you make me angry.
When you die you will also only turn to ash
And the agony of hell will eat your brains
