It is your choice.


.

I think it is ridiculous
What politicians promise us.
When they are on the campaign trail
and hope their party will prevail

They seem to think we are naïve
enough to readily believe
All of the promises they make
which once elected they will break.

We know that politicians lie
we also know the reason why
They are afraid that they will lose.
I we were really free to choose

A system which truly fair
to everybody everywhere.
The present system guarantees
a government which will not please.

The bulk of the electorate.
We have no choice but to demand.
This is no time to hesitate
We need to make them understand.

The time has come to make a stand.
Insist on change long overdue.
They’re not elected to command
But do the job they’re paid to do.

Perhaps this time our votes will show
we will no longer tolerate
The antiquated Status Quo
unsuited to a modern state.

It is your choice it’s up to you
to use your vote or to abstain
To take a chance on something new
Or settle for the same again.

Far south the lift,
