Support a life

MR MAN, ENOUGH OF THE PROMISES

Spitting promises with olden teeth,
To give a world we would not imagine,
That all will live in peace and in bland tranquility,
But you only sowed poverty instead of prosperity,
Your sugarcoated words imprisoned the eyes of our land,
And has let us fall prey to your deceit planned,
Leaving grievous wounds in our hearts.

The first four years what have you done?
When people are suffering where have you gone?
In time of hardship you are nowhere to be found,
Leaving our hope filled with harassment,
As against your promise that things will be abundant,
We all knew you are into extravagant living,
While we in turn live under the bridges.

You promise to sail us out of poverty,
But instead you only paddle us aground,
Now you leave us dancing to the tune of destruction,
Making love with poverty and romantic sadness,
You turn our fertile land into arid desert,
Our noise becomes deaf to your ears.

Standing only as a blood sucking parasite,
You promised to save all the dying souls,
But with your tabloid mouth, swallowed up our golds,
You are nothing but a notorious economic illiterate,
Turning your four years into years of locusts,
You made us bankrupt, you fed us your woe.

And when election is around the corner,
That is when you come to buy our votes,
You talked and shouted till you got sour throat,
Taking us to be fools, we’re done with you,
To hell with you and your basket of promises,
Enough is enough, we are wise enough,
We are tired of being used and dumped.

Time of patience has passed like wind,
Give back what you stole or you will be known dead,
Let’s make your stealing turns old fashion,
Now is time to stand and advocate peace,
Now is time to make your promises outdated to us,
Suppress your greed and let equality take over,
Till transparency and efficient cake sharing prevail.
