when I tell you about my problems.
But I must ask you some questions.
Why do bad people have such an easy life?
Why does everything seem to happen in the way that pleases them?

Take those bad men away like animals to kill them!
Put them in a special place, ready to die.
The grass in every field is brown and dry.
The people who live in this country are bad.
So all the animals and birds have died.
It is even worse than that. People are saying,
‘He will not see what happens to us.’
