Poem about the need to fight the corruption of government in modern so-called democratic countries.

Rebels cannot be tolerated
When they’re trying to spread the truth,
They question all the Leader’s lies
And dare to ask for proof.

Rebels must be held in check
By force if it has to be,
If violence is the only way
We’ll use it ti maintain harmony.

Rebels cannot be allowed to speak out
And question political correctness,
By contradicting the Leader’s lies
They spread discontent and unrest.

The rebels must be brought into line
By force if it’s the only way,
For rebels endanger society
When they question the lies of the State.

Rebels have got to be punished
For daring to question the regime,
For whenever they question the State’s lies
They’re guilty both of deed- and thought crime.
