This Our Democracy
Have we not tossed our democracy to jackals
And they have chewed out all its fiber and it has lost taste
Like biltong of ages?
Have we not thrown it to sires and and bitches
And they bark about it every night and day
And it goes with the echo of their screwed howling?
Have we not let it into the rivers that run to the oceans
And surrendered it to the salty waters of the seas?
Have we not thrown guns and bayonets into hell fire
