Virgo Alpha

To Free You

Freedom is coming tomorrow

Mind not your past sorrow

For money we shall borrow

To fill our last burrow


Election! It’s out time

To care of even those without a dime

And when life tastes like lime

Remember it is we who can make it thyme


All false, swear I can

I have no crimes, crossed no line

For that you see, it’s all mine

Hard I work, and wealth I mine


I’m not foreign, I’ve grown up with you

And for the problems you face, there’s nothing I won’t do

Don’t fall for the rest, however much they try to fool

For in this liberation struggle, you know we’re your best tool


On that day, wake up early

Don’t mind your corn, or your barley

Leave the rest, don’t wake them from the folly

When we take the oath, we’ll leave all jolly


What of the last term, is that your query?

Things went sour, let’s blame it on the crony

For our quest was just, and our resolve strong

But things happen, and last term they went wrong


The time draws near, battle shouts I hear

Remember to vote, or consequences bear

For the lives you want, politics you must treasure

Lives might be important, but victory is dearer


As I come to a close, this is my clarion call

Beware of the others, their promises you mustn’t fall

They lack proof, and their play is foul

They’re not like us, we who at your feet crawl
