A Political Statement - Poem by RIC S. BASTASA

i pray that corruption be murdered
let the culprits be free

i pray that dishonesty be hanged
let the judges rule

i pray for the the killing of tradition
let the love of money go hungry

i pray that the voices of the people be heard again
without any intervention

i pray that democracy shall bloom again
like a brand new day

i pray that the voices of conscience prevail
over the choking hands of money and fame

i pray for the death of tradition
for the triumph of innovation
