They

The almighty they, they plague my mind

The turmoil, the pleasure, the pain

Why can’t we all have the good

And return the kindness once bestowed upon us

 

Let us drift to sleep knowing we will awake

Refreshed, not taunted

Let the day pass with no stress or strain

Returning to home seeing no pain

 

Had I the power to prevent the bad

To change the past, and heal the wounds

To marshal the peace, and bar the unworthy

Would I?

 

Given the chance to reject the asylum

To kill the murderers, and empower the individual

To catch the thieves and punishment severe

Would the problem get better?

 

To remove Equal Opportunities,

So that all are equal,

Rather than a minority getting priority

I think I would

 

Why should one person decide?

Let us give the people the power

Electronic voting on ALL issues

The people decide, true democracy

 

All people having a unique Character Identity Card

Preventing fraud, promoting truth

Of what is there to be afraid

Unless you have something to hide

 

The country would rejoice

As the power returns to the people

The outsiders would fear

Our great country once more

 

Empowered

Prepared

Understanding

Equal
