Cause she says it better than me

by Makola

Bullets
Fatima Bhutto
 
Bullets riddle the air
Hate stalks
The streets
But sitting up high
They laugh
Nothing is wrong as long as I have power
 
Danger lurks around corners
Violence flows as freely as blood in the streets
Suddenly
Death is a part of everyday life
But those at top
Look down at the people and smile
Nothing is wrong
Nothing will go wrong as long as I have power
 
The city erupts, dissolves
The city collapses
But, at the top
They rejoice
They are in power
 
End 1995
