A fortnight today,
they will rationalize their actions –
‘Keeping the Peace’
and forget what they did.

There was no CLAMP DOWN!

A fortnight today,
their victims would still reminisce;
their ordeal they’ll pass on from
father to child, from siblings to neighbours.

There was a CLAMP DOWN!

A fortnight today,
how quickly Propaganda will rewrite history
say it once, say it again and again, and
it becomes the truth –

There was no CLAMP DOWN!

But that’s what our world is after all:
an endless twist of contrasting opinions;
it seems we have succeeded over this failure –
Truth is what you make it to be.

Truth has lost faith in itself.

There was no CLAMP DOWN! There was a CLAMP DOWN!
