Sedative

Indoctrinate patriotism
With loud jingoism!

Mix populism
With opium
Of religious fanaticism!

Serve it to the public
A new recipe for republic
As a strong sedative
To enhance slumber and make body inactive …..

If this was successful,
Monarchs, despots, autocrats dreadful
Would not have changed
Nor their position replaced!

Sedatives cannot stop brain function
Or masses from mobilisation
Or gathering forces for insurrection
For marching towards Revolution!!
