Ode to Democracy

Democracy is an extraordinary gift
Those who receive it are in good hands because their single vote could cause a political shift. Plus they can vote, speak, and boycott brands.

Democracy is indeed quite very old.

I’m glad it’s still around even though
Throughout history it’s been corrupted by those who have gold. This is a concept I cherish and refuse to let go.

Democracy is treated as a privilege but should be a right, Other systems are good too but if you don’t have a say, How can you take a stand and fight?
There is a lot wrong in our world that we must dismay!

Democracy isn’t perfect, yet.
But it’s the best I’ve seen. Dictatorship is still a constant threat,
Our system is improving, good­hearted, clean.
