IF AMMESTY IS THE KEY

They carried arms to fight their cause Of ravaged farms and streams of curse They waged their fight with thunderous might Worsening their plight for a future so bright, With flowing blood They threatened the nation's livelihood. No longer could the nation stand Their violence brand So for the sake of the economy They were granted amnesty. Then from nowhere these ones came Fomenting fear in a ‘Holy One's’ name Littering their streets with vulture's food Rearing rifts where peace once stood, With ***** intentions They threatened the nation's existence. Without pity, they destroy With the inhumane means they employ And for the sake of fair play and unity They were offered amnesty. Whereas, our tomorrows are uncertain Alas, we are in sorrows and under pain The nation has mortgaged our future Our tomorrows obscured, no hope to nurture, Our tempers are slowly rising Collectively, it might yield an uprising. But if amnesty is the key Why wait for our violent plea After swimming in frustration's sea? In advance, grant us amnesty!
