Democracy? More like Oligarchy.


Once there was a dream of
liberty and freedom
and the belief that anyone
could succeed
and take care of their family.

But hope gave way to greed then
the dream began to fade and
all that was left was a lie.
We still called it Democracy,
despite knowing we had changed it.

We’ll have us a revolution
If enough of us
demand enough is enough.

The least we could do
would be to change the word into true.
It doesn’t have to continue to be
about the same exploitations
over and over again.
