No Rat Is Indeed Above The Law

No rat is indeed above the law
Justice must be blind, fair, equal and raw
For all, in a democratic society
We are angry and fed-up with the glaring hypocrisy
Where the poor are treated wrongfully or unfairly
And the rich get away absolutely scot-free
With heinous crimes, with murder and theft
Many innocent people are put to death
In arbitrary, prejudicial and unusual fashion
And the red-handed culprits are, in their mansion
Or their tower, enjoying life to the fullest
We long for the day, when no pests
Or no rat is seen or perceived as being above the law
We want justice to be blind, fair, equal, and raw
No, today is not the first day of spring
Or the first of April. Ring the bells, keep ringing.
