year 11 (Al-Hijrah school)
You’re sinking in debt and, as if that ain’t bad enough,
It’s like having a tonne of bricks on your head
You’ve got to swim hard and fast before you end up dead!
A man in debt is nothing but a slave
It changes everything about the way he behaves
His whole life revolves around the fear of not being able to repay
And paying back the debt is all he does his entire life
So, what of the poor in nations drowning in debt?
How is it we forget these millions slaving away?
They’re treated as nothing;....... they’re paying only pennies towards their debts of trillions
The debt HAS to be cut ...............................and it HAS become more possible lately
To let them drop the debt................ and swim to safety
They could start again and run side by side with the leading nations
Millions could have running water, education, good jobs, a good life. There could buses and tube stations............................
I’m sick of everybody being so selfish
The world’s hellish
Nobody wants to help anybody for any reason in any season
If you ask me, that’s a crime against humanity – treason!
Why does it seem I’m the only one that sees it like this?
Here - let me help those in power to get the jist:
Just because the world’s poor are drowning in debt
Don’t mean the rest of the world should forget!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
