Disturbance at the Marketplace

They stood and watched as rivers rose

and bridges swept away ,

they chased after someone else’s dreams

leaving their own to rust and decay ;

They swapped their inheritance

for a handful of promises

that were all lies and jest ,

still men listen to what they

want to hear and disregard the rest ;

Others protested their innocence

as they were taken away in chains ,

no fanfare,no glory,no honour

they got nothing in return for their pains .
