Local Elections

Local Elections

Corruption is holding the reins
Demonstrations take place every day
If the situation stays the same
You have only yourself to blame

Emotions are running high
Lack of service is the cry
Empty promises and lies
Jobs by the thousands you’d supply

Loyalty must pay the price
Withholding your vote will not suffice
You need to demonstrate your rage
By using your vote to make a change

  1. I don’t know much about your elections. But our politicians are all cut from the same cloth. It doesn’t much matter who we vote for . . . they protect big business and corporations instead of doing what’s right.

    • It just makes me so cross when the people have demonstrations all over the country, and this has gone on a few times a year since Madiba’s presidency, and yet they still vote for the same government. This time, however, they are threatening not to vote at all which is really daft!

    • Yes, it can, but not here, BV. The people are up in arms about lack of service delivery and unemployment, but instead of voting for a change in government they are opting not to vote at all!

  6. We’ve just had a much needed change of state government here after 16 years and it should have happened at least 9 years ago when the rot and rorting became apparent – complacency and apathy often gets us the politicians we deserve. Well said, Adeeyoyo. bb.
