[tab id=1]Why do they
make us wait
before they lead us?
Make us beg before
they feed us?
Leave us
when we need them the most?
Please, can’t they cut
us some slack?
We have enough to worry about…
The high food prices
the cost of living.
Now, they deny us free education
like we’re not deserving.[/tab]
