Poem: The New Government

green.jpg 

Democracy is our new government

A new government of some people

By some people and for some people

Who take the throne by violence

To keep the seat as their inheritance

 

Democracy is our new government

A new government of the rulers

By the rulers and for the rulers

Who rule with the arm of oppression

And lead with a tongue of deception

 

Democracy is our new government

A new government of the retired

By the retired and for the retired

Who hail from the walls of the military

To lead the people in the path of slavery

 

Democracy is our new government

A new government of the dishonest

By the dishonest and for the dishonest

Endless promises buried in golden caskets

And nation’s wealth emptied by few pockets

 

Democracy is our new government

A new government of the transgressors

By the transgressors and for the transgressors

Where despicable crimes are celebrated

While the transgressors are liberated

 

Democracy is our new government

A new government of the oppressors

By the oppressors and for the oppressors

Whose works only promote disillusion

Keeping the people in deprivation

 

Democracy is our new government

A new government of the robbers

By the robbers and for the robbers

Who loot the national treasury

Keeping the people in their misery

 

Democracy is our new government

A new government of the crooks

By the crooks and for the crooks

Who silent the people with the boot

While they cook new ideas to loot

 

Democracy is our new government

A new government of the corrupt

By the corrupt and for the corrupt

Where robbers are crowned leaders

And the paupers are made prisoners

 

Oh! Who can bring the hand of change?

For I can see the dark cloud of change

Oh! Who can lead the disillusioned race?

For the people will embrace the grace

 

Oh! Why does this change so tarry?

For the hearts of the patriots worry

Oh! When will this change carry

The people to their dreamland of reality?

For our great nation labour in agony
