A History book is opened,

today’s lesson; Democracy broken,

a primitive past blindly chosen.

2020, a year of supposed wiser minds,

then COVID-19 comes along,

and who does it find?

Wannabe tyrants ready to cease the moment,

fear is the tactic to turn the masses into proponents.

To hell with freedom, the Constitution, national heroes who gave their lives,

all wiped away by propagated lies.

Lockdown, lockdown, tear it all down,

democratic state now a ghost town.

Where to go, when to go,

civil liberties all gone before you know.

You’ve been robbed, bamboozled, deluded and depleted,

the independence you took for granted now defeated.

All for nothin’, time has shown,

imprisoned or not, same outcome sown.

‘How could they have been so foolish, misguided,

judgement grossly lopsided?’

future generations ask when perplexity is ignited.

No answer, no solution, no rhyme or reason,

just a betrayal to the human spirit,

the ultimate treason.

And so they laugh, shaking their heads in disbelief,

at the absurdity of our here and now, what a relief.

To not have been living during such a dogmatic age,

willfully caged,

with only a few shouting out in justified rage…

WAKE THE FUCK UP!
