sET-UP COLONIAL CLONED WITH INDEPENDENCE
REMINDS VERY OFTEN A NATION'S DEPENDENCE
oN PROCESSES IMBIBED FOR EVEN GOVERNANCE
fAITHFUL TO THE MASTERS COLONIAL N NATION.

LOYALTIES THEY IMBIBED EVEN IN MACHINERY
ADMINISTRATION AND TOO IT'S FUNCTIONARIES
TO UPHOLD ETHICS OF THE ONCE RULERS
AND WORK FOR THEIR ULTIMATE BENEFIT.

THE CLONED ADMINISTRATION AND IT'S SET UP
WITH THE IMBIBED VALUES AND LOYALTIES
TAUGHT DISTORTED AND ONE SIDED HISTORIES
TO PRODUCE GENERATIONS OF THEIR CRONIES.

CLONED SET UP LEFT BY COLONIAL RULERS
DAMAGED OUR INTERESTS AND TOO ASPIRATIONS..
TIME HAS COME NOW TO FREE OURSELVES
FROM THEIR ALL THE LEFT BEHIND SHACKELS.

Not only that we sometimes do things worse than the colonial masters. Take sedition. UK has long scrapped these laws. But we still persist with it, in one form or another to curtail individual freedom. We sometimes wonder if only the colour of the skin of the masters has changed.

This practice is so prevalent worldwide! Even the best ideals are confronted with it. Each individual, every generation and society’s collective force has to stand up against this exploitation. A very thoughtful poem. Thank you for sharing and thank you so much for your recent comment on my poem.

Freedom is getting liberated from other's excessive control..... also be able to free ourselves from the clutches of their unholy influence! We should never allow ourselves to be the clones of our colonial masters! A poem exhorting each one to have independent thinking!
