Yesterday, it was:
Sharing of allocation
Allocation of corruption
Corruption of administration
Administration of deterioration
Deterioration of infrastructure
And Political realignment.
Today, it is:
Realignment of propaganda
Propagation of promises
Promises sowed on shifting sands!
Tomorrow shall see:
A people’s revolution
A revolution with ballots, not bullets
For the enthronement of true democracy
A democracy with real dividends, not mere stipends.
Behold, a new age beckons:
The age for gallant men to govern
For tired men to be retired
For moral men to prosper;
The age for worthy women to matter
And For our fatherland to flower
and blossom beyond our borders.
Alas, that age is here!
For today is the tomorrow of yesterday –
Those who have ears let them hear!
