Hello again! said the boot to the face,
stamping atop in a pretence of grace.
Offering wonderous gift-wrapped lies:
all you want, so long as freedom dies.
With followers obeying what they say,
to power despots will carve their way.
Masked like rulers, queens and kings;
marionettes pulled by unseen strings.
Fear, greed, ignorance or false cause;
the fuel for any tyranny that ever was.
An old story told by unheeded voices;
perchance time for different choices?
Nevermore serve slavery and murder;
draw the line – this far but NO further!
Surely if humanity grows a backbone,
any would-be tyrants will stand alone.
