Mr Head Of State

Head Of State

Mr head of state…/
Seems ubothenred about our current state../
All he is concerned about is stating his case…/
To faceless men and women who got him to his place…/

Now we are left in a state of despair and shock…/
No one to respond to our clarion call…/
Looking through my window and listening to the tick of the clock../
I ask. . /
When will change come?…/
Oh. . .change will be here next year. . ./
When Mr head of state restates his case to the poor we O yeah…/
About How he will mend our broken hearts…/
How he will fix the bad roads. . .roads that have murdered dreams and buried corpses…/
And we still counting our losses…/
His Face beaming with smile like a man promised the woman of his dreams…/
Sound of his voice makes me want to scream…/

His faceless fathers and mothers promised Power to the people…/
Promises fufilled by making our economy cripple…/
One achievement, adding the word ZONING to our political dictionary…/
And of course he is an in infinite loop of greed…/
Lets pray heaven send someone to this land, fast losing its green…/
