  • Excuse me Mr.
    do you have the time
    or are you so important
    that it stands still for you
  • Can't you see the children dying
    you say that you can't help them
    Mr. you're not even trying
  • I'm taking the Mr.
    from out in front of your name
    cause it's a Mr. like you
    that puts the rest of us to shame
