Our votes we gave you,
But, in return, pain you gave us.
Hold on, we know time is ticking…
This too will soon pass.
You ride on our pride with ego,
Taking out of our hands unjustly,
Acclaimed ‘tin god’ we made you…
But, this too will soon pass.
As you sit atop, plucking all the ‘ripes’
Not minding those waiting below,
Forgetting you were once here….
Remember, this too will soon pass.
