I'Ve Gone Too Long(Without Democracy) - Poem by Frederick M. Markhan

I've been without democracy too long.
Listening to people that stirred me wrong.
I believe that King is innocent,
And I see us getting militant.
bullish mob are forever growing strong,
Oh, I've been without democracy too long.l
Drugs and democracy really don't mix,
Yet, people are drinking whisky by the fifth.
I guess I've been treating the poor too kind.
Been ignoring the rich,
I must be blind.
I've been putting the congressman down,
so, they rarely come around?
Oh, I've gone too long without democracy.
Civil right..
Gay rights.
Women's rights.
What the hells going on?
Oh, I've been too long without democracy.
Well, what's wrong with me?
Oh, people can't you see?
I've gone too long without democracy.
