The answer my friend, will we ever find?

(To the tune of ‘Blowing in the Wind’…although at times the rhythm goes a bit off)

How many times would democracy be stabbed
Before it is wiped off this world?
How many times would a young girl weep
While she bleeds at the hands of the beast?
How many times would a young man sing
Of a future bright and strong?

The answer my friend, will we ever find?
The answer is playing with my mind.

How many times will the innocent be robbed
Of truth and a life that is worth?
But, how many times would the wrong-doer flee
Roam the streets in liberty?
How many days, months and years
Would it be till justice prevails?

The answer my friend, will we ever find?
The answer is playing with my mind.

    The answer my friend
    is that democracy is dead
    Now we have tyranny instead.

    sadly, I wonder if the majority of people know or even care about the things that are happening. 😐

    @lemonade – true that
    @Chavi – or maybe they are too afraid, or not bothered to do anyth? ;s Can’t blame them really!
