619. This Is How Democracy Died  

And this is how democracy died

in a dark alley away from view

viciously attacked from behind

by those who promised to keep it alive


We are all fed the lie that it still exists

while our votes are being lost

the winners have already been decided

and have been long before the elections


Shadowy figures lurking in the dark

are pulling the all the strings

making the governments their puppet

constantly hiding from everyone’s view

fearing to be brought to light


The system has failed and yet we still believe

as our freedoms are sold to the highest bidder

one day the truth will come out

and the liars will be exposed for who they are

an old may will tell the story to his children and say

“this is how democracy died”

Well said. We are an oligarchy, indeed. It isn't even very concealed anymore, though there are still light mirages that keep up appearances in order to be a buffer for the blame, protecting those most responsible. But the "they" isn't very hard to figure out. Time and time again it's demonstrated, those with the most money have the most power.

Thanks for your comment.  Happy I am not the only one that sees this
