Blue Blooded Bloodlines

Blue-blooded Bloodlines

Blue-blooded bloodlines the nations’ rulers
They keep abreast of evil deeds’ abyss
Acronyms of letdown, never taken aback by achievement
Always doing an about-turn over development

Blue-blooded sly, the peoples’ votes never count
A same serpentine idea runs in the bloodline
Like an aardvark swallowing insects
The abhorrent incarcerate the nation’s wealth

Collarbone so high,
Gluttonous, no one leans on them
The abraded subjects prays for a Judas
To betray the gluttonous leaders
