Nostalgia lies to confident idiots
Yearning to relive old glories.
Forget certain lines in history
Cannot be scratched out.
When reckoning shall come,
Time is cruel in its retribution.
Useless words held no comfort
For a land in so much fear.
Listen as a nations’ bones strain
Under the burden of ignorance.
Arrogance led to nowhere,
Left helpless, yet still selfish.
Them who were blamed, attacked, hated on,
Fought back, defiant, refused to stand down.
See how people danced in the streets,
As Democracy issued an eviction notice.
Not sorry a fragile ego got bruised,
Just delighted to see the back of it.
