Who are you?
Yes, you so don’t turn your head.
I am speaking to you state
What happened to my nation?
To the freedom you promised,
Did your manifesto die?
Look at me when I Speak!
Yes, I am speaking to you my government.
What happened to democracy?
To the freedom of speech,
To my education,
To my health?
It said you were a people’s president
But yesterday my father was dying
You tucked earbuds into your ears and drove off.
It didn’t speak of poverty
I had to close shop to avoid looters
Looters that say are your people
I am full of potholes
Overflowing with sewage
My patriotism runs dry.
You have suffocated me with tear gas
For twenty years I have been proud till you.
Are you trying to kill me?
Do you prefer corpses to humans?
Do you prefer a cemetery to a nation?
My freedom could be two Saturday nights
But my vote isn’t worth a one night stand
My love is worth a blood shed but only at the love cross
I can’t have you throw it right back at my face.
