Poem

The protestors are always demanding civil war,
but this is only understood by a handful of people, and
they are not walking with the gang.
Remember the “peaceful protests” a few decades ago?
It doesn’t matter if we are talking about Asia,
America, Africa, or Europe: a “better world for some” is not gained
through peaceful street protests since if the protests are
disturbing the daily routines of the other citizens
– halting traffic, slowing down maintenance work, and
stopping the cash flow of the entrepreneurs -,
then, it’s only a question of time before the army forces will arrive, and
the clashes between the clans will quickly reveal the actual holders of
power and the pulse of a nation.

Do you remember how long it took for your nation to heal after
the civil war?
I can tell you: the healing process never started since
the protestors of the earlier decades were sore losers, and
they decided to turn their kids and grandkids into
unhappy and rebellious brats.
If you hate this world and how it’s spinning around,
then let the power men and women bring an end to it.
The rest of us can chant the Lord’s name and help the needy.
The other option is to learn from Mr. Kaczynski:
he showed everybody that if you can execute
the so-called legal demolitions,
you can also carry out the so-called freelance jobs.
The rebuilding of the destroyed areas will create jobs for
hard-working men and women,
and you will get the change you wanted.
