Fortuna Favet Fortibus

Fortuna Favet Fortibus

They are calling me a trouble maker
For complaining about the trouble I get
But they can not charge me for being a piss taker
And they have not charged me as yet

But is it really making trouble
Raising concern about breaches of the law
Corruption should have the sentence raised double
I thought that was why they made it for

So I will continue to point out the trouble
That a criminal police officer or politician make
And always jab my prick at their gang land bubble
Just to prove that all officers are not fake

Go on give me good cause to complain
And be sure I will make trouble again

Would you stand by and watch a crime
And be too scarred to place the call
Whether committed by an officer or some political slime
A few corrupt does not tarnish them all

But if you through fear remain scarred and silent
And turn your back and hide away
Isn’t that what they want and is their bent
And it maybe you the victim some other day

So don’t worry about being called a trouble maker
When you are right to raise every crime
Put in every evil criminal law breaker
Criminal politicians and police deserve the time

So don’t worry about the rank or position the criminals hold
Create trouble for fortune favours the bold.
