Subjects queue for choices less seldom
sewn seeds ready to sprout,
fleeting moments of freedom,
governments consumed in filth and grout.
Primordial resistance prepares,
soldiers wait and scout,
democratic fulfillment dares,
shattered peoples, voices shout.
Tortured by feelings of trust
fortunes for elitists to flout.
Contrariety of notions reflect,
streets abandoned, emptied of clout,
misdealt and sorrowful hearts misled,
fallen foes, voices pout.
(fledgling nations, North Africa)
