The revolution will be bureaucratised
Sanitised, civilised
Minuted in committee
With truth sitting pretty
Waiting for approval by sub-committee
By the executive with every consecutive directive, objective
Formalised, circumscribed
You might wonder why
We even tried
We even cried
For positive change
For positive days…
