Tired

taken from Pinterest

Today I woke up tired, tired, tired

Tired of a system that has been broken for ages

Broken by a bunch of takers who keep milking the emaciated dehydrated cow.

Broken by a lot who turn a blind eye as tax payers cry for help

Today I woke up tired, tired , tired

Tired of ululating whenever power comes back

After days of constant calls with no response and being in the dark

Tired of waking up in the wee hours to go stand in a long line

Line so long you can’t tell its beginning or end

Reduced to a night owl or an early riser for water.

Today I woke up tired, tired, tired

Tired of begging, begging, begging

For help for my fellow countrymen

Who have been reduced to bridge warmers

Who choose to be high on Bronco so they can’t feel the pain

And selling mutororo to put something in their belly

Today I woke up tired, tired, tired
