under siege

I goggled my powered screen And saw venom founded smiling faces I watched tongues dance in deceit And there chameleon lips Bounced and marched to this ignominy. They propagate their obvious robbery With unconvincing window-dress And celebrates their heinousness By camoflagging this mist-free fraud Jaw agape,on my tongue a sweet liquid descend. What is this they've given life? That enveloped the day in darkness Mere anarchy, cut loose eventually By these sheep skinned wolves We afore-elected in ignorance. To hold on; they turn their bloody self. Alas! our screams reach not a drum But their whispers fill all ears. The decision we strenuously made With the lines adorning our thumbs Has been quashed by these gangsters, And to their mercy our future lies. Lisabi, Oronna, where lies your eyes Obanta et al, why remain so muted And watch them deface Your hard founded land.
