Busted!

You!
Who stand for what you believe,
Whose word means more than a promise.

You!
Who cares more for others than self,
Who bears the brunt of others' cusses.

Where are you now?,
Self-appointed administrator of justice.
What went wrong?
Where are your beliefs?

You said you will wallow in poverty,
Reel in misery;
Honour badges you will wear with pride,
You proclaim.

Where are you now!
What happened to your conscience?
Who bought it?

You!
Who wear a badge of poverty and misery,
Dwell atop a castle mountain,
Gawk upon our heads.

You!
We called our own,
Gave our throne,
Have we condoned.
