Is this the best that we can do
From an Empire of global reach
Candidates of such calibre that who
Is it that can hardly halt the retch
As words of hate and blame
Resound the halls of fame and power
A burnt out family
Versus the trumped up tower
Is this the best that we can do?
It must be that the stage is stuck
The revolving gears grinding
The common man face down again in muck
Each soul’s breath a silent gasping
Every Pharoah has their Moses
Every Empire their rise and fall.
