History Repeats

 

History repeats.

Lessons are never learned.

Fascists arrogantly strut.

Our cities burn.

 

The racist chants

Echo down the streets.

Frightened people keep quiet,

Civilisation retreats.

 

Politicians stir,

Seeking power.

Behind locked doors

Poor people cower.

 

The tribal game

Is played out again.

Every single person

Feels the pain.
