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.
