DEMOCRACY DIES IN DARKNESS

Lost at sea and recharting bearings after shipwreck.
Dreams of a nation lost in darkness.
Prejudice and greed stains Her bright colors of green and white. 
That comes with ethnic cleansing threatening to wipe off her populace.
Is it not a shame that the endangered people trapped in the dark seem completely oblivious to these fast approaching calamities?
Yet they wave brooms and umbrellas like hypnotized people.
Selling their rights to political merchants.
Democracy, political affiliation now determines who upholds your essence.
How did we get here?
The jamboree of your birth, now trailed by agony.
O how the mighty have fallen
Wait, were you ever great?
How will I know?
For I was birthed decades after you.
And all I ever heard are stories of our heroes past.
Is it not right that I witness those stories too?
But I am yet to witness your greatness.
The title "Giants of Africa" all but a worthy lie.
The youths killing themselves for nothing but lies sold.
Democracy, the day of your so called birth now desecrated.
Democracy, the reason for your birth now in chains.
Who will free you from the chains of greedy leaders and their programmed followers?
Political merchants now flock your cities.
Making mockery of your supposed greatness.
Seat of power now sold to the highest bidder.
Seat of power now given to pretentious murderers.
Trigger happy officers murders her citizen and it's tagged accidentally discharge.
She watches incinerated, incapacitated of exercising her power.
Her now dead citizen weeps from the other side.
What a shame for democracy has been deflowered in the open.
The blood from her broken hymen yet to be cleaned and her nakedness is shown to all.
Democracy weeps in darkness.
The innocence of truth deflowered on the alter of lie.
How did we get here?
A ripple in the pond, water filled with bloodied roses.
Democracy dies in darkness.
Laws placed broken by the upholder of the same law.
Democracy dies in darkness.
Growth stagnated in greed, ego, ignorance and myopic thinking.
Democracy dies in darkness.
We all agitate for change.
Yet we find ourselves running around in the same vicious circle.
O democracy, your time of perfection now reduced to an illusion of the mind.
Lie now an art of perfection while truth becomes an illusion of the mind..
Truly democracy has died in darkness.
