They swindle and squander our national resources.
They take debt on our behalves.
They live uphill in mansions as we live downhill in their gatas.
From us they take inform of tax and never give back anything or at least penuts.
I mean where are those social services you may refer to if you doubting me?
Oh our lives.
I worry not only for my unborn children but even their descendants.
Shall I cry or shall I not!
Shall I smile or shall I let be?
Shall I smile to show gratitude and fullfil their expection of me or shall I just beat it!
What do i care? I mean they care even less!
Or shall I cry because that is what I really feel for?
I don’t care if I don’t make any difference for all I care about is to express myself.
The oppressor has indeed done his job and now it is up to you.
He wants you to be silent and let him do as he wishes but that is the worst form of violation. Resist him. Talk. Shout. Write. Sense and nonsense but express yourself and repeat it allover again and again.
Let him bend you but not break you. Let him tear gas you or beat you but as long as he doesn’t maimed you, I say you still got some means. Look here, the worst thing you can do is let a dictator take away your voice. Don’t allow him to silence you.
Of course he has don’t it all. What do you think it means when the freedom of the media is grossly infringed upon. That is the worst a dictator can do to cut off the people’s means to openly air out their oppressions or sufferings. To hinder people from speaking out. From openly resisting. From fighting but and from trying to hold him accountable.
Maybe you learned some lessons from those democracies that we read about in history and you can help me here, does it really matter if you are oppressed or not? Because that is all that I feel within the territorial boundries of this country whose greatness has been hampered many times by men and women such as those whom some of our idiot brothers and sister worship now as though they are small gods here in our country.
I know they say that kings rise and fall but I hate to catch myself thinking like that. I focus most on the element of time above all. I also mind much the lives of the young women and men who live and perish without ever see their bottoms because they never grew to materialise and make that major turn.
How can I cry, smile or understand the difference in the similarity!
Who expects me to understand anyway?
All they see are idiots. Constituents and votes leave alone voters. If any voters at all then those whose vote has a monetary value anyway and in which case the buyer sets his own price.
Because I don’t not have the ability to huggle, I also blame it on you. I mean, you mastered my weakness and now you know them. I am weak, I admit but you made me that way. Right from day one you have planned to weaken me with your one man’s vision to exploit me. Denied me education, health services and abandoned me to die in hunger and poverty.
Some will seek to exonerate you of all that I accuse you of. Others will even wonder how I dare do that but my simple response is try and be oppressed and subdued by a true dictator then you will understand what we have gone through without a glimpse of an end.
Too bad some short sighted people see an end. A quick end. An end that is very near. Unfortunately for me I must admit that some of you my brothers and sisters are also idiots of your own kind. Looking at all this dust in the tunnel, how long sighted are you to see an end. Moreover a clear end! You tempt me to assume that you are not sighted at all.
Or are they right to see that in us all and well, then our blood lineage could be clearly confirmed cursed. I mean we are black. Right? Some people have actually gone out of their ways and assumed that we black people are by all means less intellectually gifted compared to others. But I mean, personally many times I have wondered about this otherwise, our development process should no longer take as long as the West and some of the East did because, those same people have laid the road map for us.
Well, they are partly to blame for our confusion! I mean, have you ever imagined what this great continent would have become if they never interfered with the process of our development. If they never disrupted the societal order that was established?
Yet, even to some of them all I am is still a common idiot. Look they blame me for allowing a dictator to keep us hostage for this long yet they forget easily how long it took them in view of their own past dictators.
To the best of their knowledge, I am an idiot who will never rise up and demand for my rights.
And what if I do, the gun is there to put me right back in my place!
So whatever I chose to do I am the loser either way.
Oh our lives.
They travel first class,
They eat at their fancy tables draped with silver and gold.
They sleep in five star hotels apparently and talk about us as poor and dirty disgusting people.
They wonder if we really are human.
They convene with the rest of the world leaders at such summits but all they learn about democracy is dictatorship.
All they learn out of development theories is, self gain.
I am tired of it all.
Oh our lives.
We demonstrate peacefully.
We vote or not.
We try to form political parties to oppose the wrongs.
But what don’t you know about dictators.
They are the system and the system is them. So why don’t you teach me how to separate them?
Together with all their puppets, the only rule they know is that of covering each other’s backs.
They bit and blow each other like rats.
And the idiots some of us are, of course we join them in their biting and blowing games to seek for survival right?
I don’t really care. You are all one of a kind. Look, I never waste my time in assuming that you are different. I mean if your were, wouldn’t that thick skull of your tell you to do the right things and roast the real oppressors and yes, give back the power to the people?
I just wonder. Who you think you are and how long you think you can play this game. And the end that is what it is. Right? A game. I am not proud of it but I pity you all puppets because you think that it is us all idiots who get played and you are part of the players but see how quick you get picked, used and dropped any time like a used tissue!
I truly don’t care if you think that I am the idiot here but what matters to me is that you are the bigger idiot.
There goes some of us who have been good ones for decades joining them because we can’t bet them. But this is what I say, we beat them again and again and again and try even harder. As long as we never give up, one day the odds will be on our side and we will beat them out of that power that they captured and clinged on like a tick on a cow. Idiotic move. Just sucking cow but not feeding it so is the problem here. The cow or the tick?
But who cares!
