“I am from among Have-Nots.
But I Have no Notes.
Let’s change the vocabulary of votes!
Let those who Have notes
Be called the Have-Nots
They Have-Not “ hunger”
They Have-Not “ labour”
They Have-Not “ sweat”
They Have-Not “ Open Toilet.”
Let me be the “Have”
I Have “anomie and alienation.”
I Have “the wrath of capitalization”
I Have “the suffering of corruption.”
I Have “the curse of illiteracy and polarization .”
Let me be “ Have”
And let them be “Have-Nots.”
Let us change the vocabulary of votes!!.
My fellow proletarian!
Learn from Animal Farm
And raise a rebellion !!”
Against bribery and corruption!”
We Have “the power of the population.”
