He Says Democracy - Poem by Sayeed Abubakar

He says democracy.
The world understands democracy.
But I know he means oil.

He says justice.
The world understands justice.
But I know he means brutality.

He says God.
The world understands God.
But I know he means Satan.

This is the reason, for which he hates me.
This is the reason, for which I hate him.
