Oh Democracy!

Oh Democracy,

You, most desirable bride among,

Political systems,

Your suitors many have been throughout History,

In every part of the world, you were the one

They were after

 

Oh Democracy,
Seldom have shown no favouritism to any of
Your suitors, for all fell short of
Your lofty aspirations
 
Thus
 
Oh Democracy,
You chose to them
And you stood for
The common good of the people,
Happiness of the people,
Promote the interest of the people,
 
Thus
For that reason, oh Democracy, I understand you now
Why a spinster, you, have chosen to
Remain!
