Rattle

 
If you steal from a country of God knows how many
you won’t get in any
trouble,
the politicians did it
claimed for the non-expenses and hid it
but we
found them out
 
they didn’t bother
just said sorry
and
won’t do it again
 
I got a friend who’s doing 5 to 10
for pinching some lead
mind you
it was wrapped around a pound
of plutonium.
