Democracy

We elect our leaders
With our precious votes
They are supposed to serve us
The ordinary folk

How can they do that
If they cannot hear our cries?
If they ignore our suffering?
If they tell us lies

Electors should be bosses
To the political class
But it’s money they answer to
Whenever they are asked

How can it be democracy
When money is all that’s heard?
When our supposed representatives
Are by greed and power lured

For it to be democracy
Needs more than votes cast
It needs real accountability
It needs duty to society
Always to come first not last.

For a choice between puppets
Who greed and money serve
Makes democracy a fiction
One that is quite absurd.

AFRICA

God made everything to be free and fair
and forever he'd shown us His care
and gave everyone his flair
so that the world would see and understand His glare

look at what is happening in Somalia
genocide and hunger have made them inferior
see what is also happening in Libya
selfishness and greed have been their superior

bribery and corruption is the case
whom-you-know is what we now face
Nigeria, Ghana and the like are already on the chase
bribery and corruption has already set the pace

nevertheless we are the origin of culture
from time immemorial our tradition is what we nurture
and from cradle to the grave our ethics we administer
yes, we show the true meaning of nature

Africa, of which nature can boast
gold and diamond are what we raise for a toast
oil and cocoa always fill our coast

we have all nature has got
our pride and dignity our ancestors have fought
God has given us everything His love has thought
yet greed and selfishness has destroyed everything we've toiled and bought

Suffering From The Exhaustion

Suffering from the exhaustion,
That has eliminated the feeding...
Of their own gluttonous greed,
Is not the fault of those...
Who have been hired to service,
Their needing to feast.
Or those who came to warn,
Of leaner days ahead.

Suffering from the exhaustion,
That has eliminated the feeding...
Of their own gluttonous greed,
Has been self inflicted.
With a sweetened ignorance,
All fed upon to do to choose...
A doing exactly what they pleased.
No matter who was stepped on or over.

Stop Funding (The Greed)

stop funding the greed!
failure to produce tax returns,
failure to pay taxes,
mistresses, deals done
behind closed doors,
votes bought and sold...

lies upon lies upon lies.
you have to be wealthy to lead?
you cant stand on your own works,
you have to stab someone else
in the back?
none of you have a clue...

what real life is like!
when a system becomes this corrupt,
you have to take it down to the core!
what you cant fix you destroy,
and start again!
stop trying to sell us freedom,
we choose to be free!

stop funding the greed!
