Common People


Common people.
Where is common people?
We are now using them
For our own selfish ends.

Common people are the lords
Of democracy and in parliamentary
Forms of Government and
They are unpleasant.
Common people are in poverty
And they are being used as play things.

We the politicians, we the officers
Are the servants of common people
And we realized it at least
During elections, we care for
Common people, see here at this time.

Are we not impure wretch?
Are we not perpetual enemy of common people?
It is true, we have not given up ours
Lust, greed and vanity, see, we are very passionate.

We have forgotten our service towards common people
And we are the enemy of entire land,
And alas!
We have sought shelter in common people.

poet Richard Lovelace

Tell me not (Sweet) I am unkind,
That from the nunnery
Of thy chaste breast and quiet mind
To war and arms I fly.
