Somewhere

across the oceans

in a town

on foreign soil

a baby cries out for her mother

a cry the mother cannot hear

a mother who has been strangled by the hands of the revolution who swore to protect her

the revolution against corruption

corruption brought on by power

power brought on by a revolution

an endless cycle

an endless attack

one head falls and another takes its place

corruption is born again

power is born again

and another revolution is born again

an endless cycle

an endless attack

and the populace keeps on praying for the revolution

the revolution against the revolution against the revolution against the revolution

and the baby keeps crying for her mother…
