THIS POST was inspired by Hong Kong artist Kathy Mak’s coronavirus-themed parody of Natalie Imbruglia’s hit song ‘Torn.’ This one’s about the guy-who-must-not-be-named.
I thought I saw a man with his aide
He was pale, sleeps all day, but he would still get paid
He showed us what it was to fail
Well, he couldn’t be that man we voted for
He doesn’t seem to know, doesn’t seem to care
What his heart is for
Now, fewer like him anymore
There’s nothin’ there but trolls and lies
He wants all addicts to die
That’s what’s going on
Nothing’s fine, we’re f*cked
China’s now in charge
This is how we feel:
we’re scared but we will fight
POGOs, Covid, Xi Jinping
Duterte’s really changed
Into Beijing’s bitch
He’s sold us out and he can’t see
our country is now torn
It’s a little late
We’re already torn.
