Government by default

Government by default

By Abdulmajeed K Nunez

How can we allow Francis to become PM by default?
No wonder the country is doing economic summersaults
It’s gonna be everyone’s fault
For failing to think outside the colonial vault
Development is at a screeching halt
The minute you sell you vote
And take the load of sand and the blue note
The citizenry eating five years worth of salt
Because of the contract they made under strain
It’s youths committing all sorts of assaults
The entire country is at fault

Where are the country’s think tanks?
Why is our prime real estate in the hands of banks?
Think tanks will help to project the country forward
With each passing election we are making five steps backward
As a country we are awkward
A two party system treating us like retards
Treating us like bastards
When we elected Stuarts
Who should in fact be Sheppards?
They are now in fact setting themselves up as lords
While the poor people di starve

It is up to us our to carve out our future
We need an economic food base or we will all starve
We have been dealing with a two party system betrayal
That has been immoral, unethical and sometime criminal
Turning Belize’s sons and daughter into prostitutes
Using them then after election cutting them loose
Is it laziness, craziness or helplessness?
That blacks are the ones marginalized
Criminalized, with the highest murder rate on the Southside
To maintain the status quo they are pushing for marijuana to become decriminalized
Others are pushing for it to be legalized
Belizeans open unu eyes
Ask anyone who switched sides
PUDP are allies in disguise
But our people are still infatuated
Think that they will reconciliate and appreciate

These are the same persons
Promoting same sex relations,
Prostitution and abortion under
Their gender policy program
Is this progression or liberation
What about the upcoming generation?
Where is their twenty-five year plan?
We cannot afford a PM by default
We need to get our minds out the colonial vault!
