dont give me your democracy,

give me my freedom.

dont give me  your democracy,

give me my rights.

dont give me your democracy,

give me my  peace.

dont give me your democracy,

give me my security.

dont give me democracy,

give me my wealth.

dont give me your democracy,

give me my power.

dont give me your democracy,

give us our  unity.

On the podium,

Lungs out,

he screams,

professing ,accusing,condenming,confusing...

his silver tongue aligns words meticulously to mislead.

give me my democracy,not your meaningless speech.

give me accountability,not your corruption.

give me delivery,not your nepotism.
