- A bullet for infection, a hundred twelve injections.
- Stop the spread with dozens dead, four months till my election.
- McBuffalo the traitor now opposite of labour;

- Each day we dig for dirty pigs deep under desert sand.
- We work, and bleed, and sweat to pay our hungry debt.
- So tired now, collective vow to make the mountain trek.
- With patience we sit waiting, our roof and bed dictating
- Protection feigned, they try in vain our weapons confiscating.
- Green blanket calls dismount from off the mighty mount
- Thousands strong now join the throng towards the body count.
- Spears clapping and just singing, their chants in valley ringing.
- Box them in! We’re going to win! Let’s start the tear gas flinging!
