Why the Anarchy...

  • For my life I fear
    As my eyes fill with tears
    My hostels gassed
    Coz I want lowered gas

    When calmly I speak
    It just feels weak
    Driven to suffer pain
    By the riding Father with the reins

    I stand back
    And foresee plenty of lack
    Who will survive this, I wonder
    And oft I'm left to ponder

    Already, many have nothing to eat
    Out there wallowing in poverty
    It's not enough to sit and meet
    While stuff goes wrong in society

    Harsh, is the life of the vast majority
    Plush, is your present abode
    Whence, you worsen their present reality
    This horse, that to your victory you rode

    What shepherd searches the best spot
    To hide himself from the cold
    Leaving his sheep in the bitter rain
    Leaving them out in rough terrain

    Of bleating about the bush we tire
    For its all we ever do
    So we set the bush on fire
    So he knows we're in trouble too

    There goes my present dream
    Hehehe... remitted to the future 
    By today's society's cream
    It would be funny if it wasn't torture

    Things always on the increase
    What happened to the promise of the decrease?
    Why this jibber-jabber, Convolution 
    When you promised us revolution?

    Simz you've lost your way
    You need a reminder today
    What hopes you've crushed
    All that initial joy dashed

    The new broom sweeps just like its predecessor 
    Leaving behind the same old dirt
    The new wineskin is a gong'a 
    Copiously leaking out to our regret

    All in all
    There is much left to do
    Hope you've been reminded to do your job
    Now we can return to ours too.

  1. Its like you read my mind! You seem to know a
    lot about this, like you wrote the book in it
    or something. I think that you can do with a few pics to drive the message home a bit,
    but instead of that, this is wonderful blog. An excellent
    read. I'll definitely be back.
