Ashamed

Spread the love

Feeling alone with borderline personalityOur green and pleasant land blighted by hate,

Little men with little island mentality –

Make war against democracy,

The weak harnessed to the yoke of injustice –

As the world points fingers.

 

History starts to repeat

And the words that once dismissed –

Spring to the lips of the scared.

The vision so clear obscured by lies,

As money changes hands,

 

Truth tellers lie and feed misinformation,

Buzz words like fake news used to undermine,

While the saviour is sacrificed for word and deed,

Those with power snatch power,

While the body count mounts,

 

Lies on lies and hand picked stats,

While our leaders fund our murders,

As the rule of law is dismissed and ignored,

Victorian poor in the 21th century,

At the same time as the 1 percent laugh,

 

4 decades of political ideology.

As the red turned purple the blue was bold,

It sold the ground below and your children’s hope,

As the old got cold the sick where left alone,

And they tell you it’s what you wanted
