In a country were army generals
Believe the bullet is mightier than the ballot
In a country were they swear
The country will not be sold by ink
In such a country
Why do people vote
In a country were the winners are decided,
Not by the franchise,
But by those who announce…
The electoral results
Are we masters of our own destiny,
Why do we vote….
In a country,were it is not worth voting,
In a country were the ink,is not worth the victory….
Why do we still go to the polling booth?
In a country were elections are mere rituals…
Why do we still vote…
