It’s not how good you are
That makes for the best leader
But how much you count;
Two and two don’t make three
But it’s close enough and
When your first and last names
Are the same, it doesn’t give
You a double claim in the race
If two and two don’t make three
Count and count again until you
Get what you want: practice,
Practice! That’s how you get an
Accountancy degree — the people’s
Decree: Forget democracy, forget
Peace, forget the initial results.
Best vote for the Commission who
Will decide your ruler.
