Democracy Day

This day finds us chained in toils
While politicians and their cohorts
Snuff out the lives of public millions,
To blow their trumpets of corruption
In the drama of their democracy day.

Politics masquerade in multiple faces
Thuggery and vote-rigging glorified,
Medals shared on pages of newspapers
To professed saviours of the nation
In the drama of their democracy day.

We cannot celebrate this democracy
In the pain of our castration!
We cannot celebrate this democracy
In the shame of my cowardice!
We cannot celebrate this democracy
We mourn the demise of our humanity!
