via Daily Prompt: Protest


I’m just another disaffected dissident

Dispirited, dissatisfied, discontent

Persecuted, victimised by government

I’m just another denigrated citizen


Just another member of the majority

Subjugated, silenced by the minority

Abused and beaten by those in authority

Victims of their sense of superiority


Tired of listening to the aristocracy

Feeding us lies that this is a democracy

Open up your eyes, see the hypocrisy

We’re governed by a fucking bureaucracy

Whatever happened to the meritocracy?


But we’re fighting back now, we won’t be silenced

Staring back at them with eyes of defiance

No longer can they count on our blind compliance

We’re taking back control now from the tyrants
