We Call It Democracy

We Call It Democracy

I said I could

I meantof course

I couldn’t

I said I would

But of course meant

I wouldn’t

The party said

I should

But naturally

I said I shouldn’t

What is it of which I speak

Naturally it is

To tell the truth

But how can I

Change my tune

Why change my life

When everything I do

Is based on lies and lies

I’ll say I will

But mean I won’t

Whatever I say

Please me forgive

You see what I meant

A double negative

It make no sense

The truth is foreign

Foreign to me

I’m sure that you will agree

And no I never do regret

After all what did you expect

I’ve lied and cheated all my life

You’ll just have to accept 

So don’t bother to plead

If you had been listening 

You may well agree

I’ve never hidden the fact

That I’m driven by selfishness

Ego and greed 

So suck it up

Put up with your plight

If me you finally elect

A serial liar in me

Well that’s hard luck

We call it democracy
