He Could Have Saved Us.

He grew up with a destiny to fulfil,

To enrich the poor and heal the ill,

He’d stop the wars and then cure aids

And all without raising his blades,

He would be leader of the few,

The survivors of the damned,

Rally mankind through a holocaust,

Dystopia’s only hint of hope,

But mankind’s only chance of life,

Was destroyed in 2009,

When university refused him entry,

For there were too many in line,

His government refused them cash,

Given to bail the banks from crash,

Money used for invading wars,

Turned many a student into whores,

Now our could be saviour,

disheartened, dejected and destitute,

Turns his back on the state that failed him,

And seeks solace in a little blow,

Without hope of job or school,

Each rejection added pain,

Of drugs and harsh endeavours

Green, heroin and cocaine,

This guy was found at 23,

Death from vomit and O.D,

And now this world is lost to hope,

A victim of bureaucratic rope,

Morals and stories put aside,

Your government will only fail you,

Make heard your voice and concern,

And rally for your rights,

Power is within your grasp,

If you dare to reach and take,

There is no sin to basic needing,

Of rights you shouldn’t need to slake.
