Proudly they hurl banter to and fro,
The politicians
Who say they fight for us, fight only for our vote,
The so called media holds the reigns of
OUR kingdom,
MY kingdom,
YOUR kingdom.
Lies insulate the foundation of those who aim to lead,
Hope binds those from grasping reality,
but reality is happening now.
Facts, achievements, decisions
have merely become bullets,
used to sink into the hearts of the enemy,
The Other faction.
What is this really about?
Is it not about
OUR proud nation
My proud nation
YOUR proud nation?
Maybe I’ll just move to Switzerland.
