We the people

The gullible crowd cheered energetically

They knew not they were being taken for a ride

They clapped and whistled and stomped their feet

The fools didn’t realise that their leader had lied.

Same scenario to be seen everywhere

Narrow parochial views triumphing all over

Leaders stooping to conquer by stoking fears

In a bid to reign supreme and takeover.

The much vaunted rule of the people

Loftily heralded as democracy

And a cure to all that plagues our nations

Is actually nothing but the tyranny of majority.
