Democracy
©2007 Gibbens/Weston

There’s energy oppressed
Howling in the night,
Spoiling for a fight.
Give us the voice of the dispossessed,
Crying out for rights,
Calling for more light.
Blessed are the meek and blessed
Those who hunger and thirst after righteousness.

True, true, true
Democracy
Is the queen of hearts,
Not hypocrisy
Nor plutocracy,
Daylight robbery,
Secrecy nor trickery.
All the people
Taking all the parts:
True, wise, brave and free
Democracy.

Let the people choose,
O let the people choose…

No repression,
No conniving,
No distortion,
No self-serving.
All the people
Taking all the parts:
True, wise, brave and free
Democracy.

Let the people choose…
