You are a child of mother earth
Still then being a child of mother earth why are you not able to get food?
Those who you think of as caretakers, government ministers and bureaucrats
Have they been able to fill your stomach?
And if you are protesting about this, why are you whispering so quietly?
Your voice is not strong
Don’t you know how to rebel?
Hey lame man
I , your mother will become febrile, shivering and crying
Her feet will be soaked in sweat
But then don’t say that it was because of the sea tides or storm waters

The Left wing China
And their followers who believe that industry can feed you
And you lame man, believe those who do what they want
I am your mother and you don’t trust me
