A Hero Will Come

The day has arrived
spirits of our fathers
sitting on the terraces
watching our doings

Our elders are greedy
they are blinded by money
they are rolling in corruption
yet, our fathers spirits remain silence

Our elders slur themselves
sly smiles they present us
we kept mute like
our fathers spirits

At the sunset
the weaks came and
gone with our fathres labour
yet, their spirits keep silence

The night comes
the moon
the stars
they refuse to visit us

A poltergeist bring us doom
obviously, the devil
indeed, a gloomy state
everyone is

luckily, our fathers spirits vow
to give us a hero tomorrow
yes, tomorrow
for all is gone for today.
