POLITICAL DUTY

*POLITICAL DUTY* Shhhhhhhh! Did your hear that? You can say you heard nothing But the truth is you are listening to the silence you've just created A silence that is always there It is only that we don't care That's why... The wind is always in motion Sometimes fast and loud Sometimes slow and quiet no signs shown Freedom! Freedom! Freedom! We need our independence That's right...who will give it you? A lot of people and things Government, your boss,the police and a bullet That's chronology Government will influence your boss Next thing you are fired At home,no nothing wish you had retired Stressed up, go clubbing,call friends and throw up the toss With no time you become friends with bankruptcy Feeling pressed down Your rights being deprived The streets beckons you Revolution! Revolution! Liberation The devil playing tricks That is not the solution Government smiles,job well done! They take it to the press and promises you freedom Streets flocked,men in blue with guns in hand, reporting for duty Cans fly releasing smoke Not pleasant; choking and pungent Live bullets are not ready to play saints...they join the cans Smoke everywhere, chaos and confusion You got nowhere to run Sound of the gun is the last thing you hear Bullet burst open your chest,the heart surprised ceases to function Breaking news: One shot dead during the demonstrations Family and friends left with pain CongratulationCongratulations! You have achieved something; your freedom No one will oppress you in that grave
