This world of liars

This world of politicians

The world of ‘peaceful’ demonstrations

This world of petrol bombers

This world!

This world full of pretenders

This world of executive arrogance

This world of killing and getting killed

Of threatening and getting threatened

This world!

This world of educated savages

Of good for nothing caricatures

This world of the full sun

Where the light cannot be seen

This world!

This world of queuing

For fuel, medicine and lovemaking

This world of firing and getting fired

Of cursing and getting cursed

This world!

This world of academic freedom wrangles

This world of notorious police officers

This world of political church leaders

This world of abortions

This world!

This world of writers

Engrossed in the splendour of politics

This world of worldly Messiahs

This world of blessings in disguise

This world!
