The Drums Of Death? (2021)

Are these the drums of death I hear?
Spelling the doom of Democracy

Free speech infringed for pronouns, and offence.
Are these the drums of death?

Free movement and free market sacrificed
For safety and for order
Are these the drums of death?

Truths twisted by the mainstream sophists
Into lies for fools to stumble on
Are these the drums of death?

False claims of racism and white supremacy promoted by government, media, and academia
Are these the drums of death?

Scapegoating of patriots and ignorance of left-wing terrorism
Are these the drums of death?

Politicians representing special interests, not their own constituents
Are these the drums of death?

Facts suppressed to suit political agendas
Are these the drums of death?

The death of Freedom

Without freedom what is life?
Is it - but a drum of death?
