The Immigrant Zombie RAP : UNT-RAP-ZZIN


The Immigrant Zombie

Immigration to another country 
in desperation we flee
what happened to the land 
that the earth allotted to me?

I am supposed to survive 
in my country
with all the amenities
you enjoy in your country

The greed of some
who have taken more than
what is given
to all equally

Created a lack for others
they cannot enjoy
a life with dignity 

Do not be greedy
forgive yourself and see
that the consequence outflow 
is massive in degree

Unequal distribution
we do not have a solution
but to flee to another country
who has more 
in terms of jobs, health care
 and social security

We do not have much of this 
in our country

The multinational companies
build a business in my country
to extract energy from the sea
to earn more money you see

Then donates to the unfortunate
to make up for making money from the 
earth's resource 
we call the sea

They made sure the guilt will not be felt
they got the media to take pictures
 to make it look
as if its good
then provide food for the guests
pictures taken
the guilt disappears

Some leaders hide their face 
and take the money in secret
given by these businesses

It never reached the poor
the pocket is still empty
when they closed the door
and allegedly took the money

They took them to jail
and they call this the solution

I say No
repair it from the source
for tomorrow 
someone will do the same 
and the problem will 
be a vicious cycle

It will be inherited 
by the next generation
and the solution 
will not be known

Because the band-aid was on
no one can see the wound
they layered the band-aid  
now it turned into a cancer
that multiplies uncontrollably
in the country's body

They try to put another leader
hoping to fix the cancer
another band-aid was provided
and now they say
he has balls

Unknowingly creating 
the same cancer as before
the whole body
as a whole 
gasps for breath 
like a living dead

A zombie
 alive but dead
when the body's life force
is absent

Walking here equally 
enjoying each others company
that is the life force of society
take them away and you will be 
an immigrant zombie

You migrate to another country
to ask for a job
so you can survive
the same company 
that took energy from your country's sea
will be giving you charity

help for the poor zombie
who now wears a smile 
because he's got lots of money
education plus a job
savings to give his family

making up for the loneliness
of being separated from the group 
who watched you grow
and stand on your own
lulling you to sleep when you were born

now everyone is happy
they celebrate and jump in glee
they call this the solution

but i ask myself
is this really?

what about the cancer 
that is the consequence 
outflow of not taking responsibility
to give your country
a living income guarantee
plus an incentive to work for more 
when needed by the people
so they will not migrate for money
to live in dignity
in their own country

wearing nice clothes 
and shoes
eating food that is delicious
they walk with grace 
smile brimming on their face
money in their pockets
they've got certificates

but deep within
they are dying
like a zombie that is smiling
only they cannot see
 they are the immigrant zombie

they ask help from the zombie hierarchy
to survive in another zombie country
where the living dead 
celebrates its joys
with money aplenty

the zombie hierarchy in another country
employs the immigrant zombie
and gives them money for they too 
needs an employee
they take advantage of each other you see

then they say
you got your education 
you look able so come and work for me
that way we will enjoy 
each other's company

for I have helped you and you have helped me
we are brothers and sisters 
who care
don't you see?

But i disagree
this is self-diminishment you see

I say no, thank you
I will take my life back
I do not want to be the living dead
how can we enjoy each other 
when I am an immigrant zombie
in your country
and you are in a zombie hierarchy

we do not even know
that this is a consequence outflow
and not the solution that we say so

to be content and call this happiness
isn't rightfully so
this is self-diminishment
in disguise you see

we have to hit rock bottom
to bring life to the zombie 
and see the illusion
have an intimate moment
with yourself
then when you are ready  
to be reborn
and see that the solution 
is standing for what is best for all

rejoice and celebrate
for you have seen the real solution
Living income guaranteed
for dignified life to be restored
do not pretend to help
when you cannot give ones equal share
that amount of money you give 
is alms for the poor 
do not call it help
for it isn't so
it is out of pity 
because of the superiority
and inferiority in society
this HEL-l in Peoples lives
we should turn
to be the HEL-ipad  
a P-latform where we see each other 
as equals

we are a part of this one life 
zombies we are not

we are the breath in this body
in awareness we should move our body 

do not forget that walking as equals
 is the solution that we seek

do not give it up

do not diminish yourself

pull yourself up
take your life back
do not be the living dead
you are here as part of this one life
be the helipad - the platform where we equally stand
