Let People Govern


Let people govern
Let people also learn
About their plight
And reasonable rights

Politicians have cheated people
For number of years and troubled
Now time has come to assert
With no out side force to exert

They have looted country
Not cared for poverty
In every institution there is corruption
Now we want total elimination

Let corrupt people be brought to book
Let them return all money they took
Each person wants account for their misdeeds
Honest person must come forward and lead us

Let people prevail over system
Let the table be turned
Let people really rule
As they are now no more fools

    Governance

    We have honed the craft of corruption and impunity in government. No one is perturbed about what he or she does as far as their pockets are full. Unknown to them, they are jeopardizing the future of the young ones. They have looted country.. Anyway, the writer, offers hope that corrupt people will be punished and the money will be returned and they will be sent to prison. Finally, reason will prevail and the 'thieves' will be brought to book. This may be indirectly refering to the revolution in Egypt, Tunisia, Algeria and other Arab world. (Report) Reply

Oft I had heard of Lucy Gray:

The solitary child.
