Freedom and the Ruling Class

It is said that freedom is divine but
the state of being free does not mean the same
to all of us. Some are free just to be
brute, lawless and decadent even more…

Where the tropic of cancer intercepts
the right angled meridian, there is a state,
a nation sovereign for forty years,
to satiate the indulgent ruling class.

The history of her subjugation
is cruel and almost a thousand years long,
sadly though, despite the bulk nothing much
has changed for the naive subjects of the land.

They have been betrayed and duped time and again
by their native lords, greedy and prurient,
too eager to welcome even strangers
to decide their fate and abuse it too…

Unless the ruling class is fair, apt and benign,
what kind of benefit on earth can freedom bring!
