You Are Not My Leader

A good friend of mine is once again taking part in a community song writing event called Having collaborated a few times over the years we decided to try again, so without further ado please take a listen to You Are Not My Leader.


Don’t fill our heads
with all these lies
then ask the people
to decide.

Don’t turn your back
dare walk away
You lit the paper
and made us pay

Ripped apart
at the seams
the world I knew
now stands and screams.

You are not my leader

The books you read
were free to you
your sense of worth
has been abused

Fake news
Alternate facts
Fleet Street
Phone hacks.
Social news
You pray to God
But there is no heaven.

Your face and name
on everything
Turn off my TV screen,
turn off my stream

Don't be shy, leave a reply
