End of an Era by Thompson Emate

Thompson Emate | Dec 7th, 2022 | poetry | No Comments

Poem

A necessary change,
No longer a bandwagon with the masses,
The voices of the downtrodden
must be heard,
No longer a fusion with sycophants,
The cries of the oppressed must ring through,
We’re no more puppets pulled by strings,
Dancing to inhuman dictates,
We refuse to live on crumbs
that fall from the master’s table,
We refuse to go away with meagre portions from our opulent ration,
We no longer partner with doomed optimism,
We stand for fairness and justice,
The spirit of good governance
we ask to pervade our land,
As we sing our songs of freedom.
