Ageless Anguish through Regimes

Twenty years in the past we looked
Twenty years in the past is today
Creaking and cracking unending for all 
Masochist Regimes competing 

He reigned with dark goggles twenty years past
The masses blocked off from the rays of governance
Through macabre masses reeled in military style  
In penury all dwelled  

In beards he stepped out to mock the saints 
The people still floating and lost in their hope
Premeditated masochist’s democratic plan unleashed
In limbo all lay

We saw our very own Mandela
Escape from militarization wrongly imagined
Tyrannical imposition of corruption beheld
In shock, appreciation came 

The academician turned politician should save 
Conflicting confusing actions in relative short time
Corruption runs free wheel, while the master is away 
In hopelessness all surrender 

Good luck met overwhelming goodwill 
A joke willed by the people to truly lead 
The goggles have become transparent twenty years after
In idiocy all get joggled
