The Web Poetry Corner - James Bredin - Proportional Representation
A small activist minority here, have always ruled our regime,
A pompous clever crowd that seek to screen their extreme,
They tend to represent themselves rather than the majority,
Because in first-past-the-post they hide that they’re a minority.
Democracy therefore becomes part of the overall illusion,
That you and I are represented amid this confusion and delusion,
They dub themselves a hollow label so you can go back to sleep,
You communist democrat republican liberal nazi socialist sheep.
Therefore representation by population is the only way to go,
Where only your real majority of the people are represented bro,
But you will notice that those in power usually shun this arrangement,
They like things as they are because they rapture in estrangement.
