    Unreconstructed mentality

    Hunger strikes the marginalized.
    They died in the hands of poverty.
    ...Is this democracy?

    Arthritis preys on their bones;
    Groaning and defeated stomachs receive bread crumbs for breakfast.
    ...Is this democracy?

    Their Bellows and distresses
    will reach to GOD,
    "Neither will they hunger no more"
    Is the only constant that remains a fact.

    ...Is this democracy?

    Their wrinkled skins melt in the heat,
    Digging for Gold they will never own
    And the fragrance of money they can never buy.

    Now that is what we call democracy,
    Fellow comrades.
