Democracy

We are animated

Manipulated by thought, word and deed.

We are traded

Capitulated and triangulated.

We are sourced

Ruled over and restricted

We are degraded

Consumed and suffocated

We are devised

Deceived and derided

We are fooled

Canvassed and quizzed

We are deluded

Self inflicted and incapacitated

We are blamed

Victimised because we voted.
