My poetical take on the election!

Recommended Posts

There won't be a battle,

nor cages to rattle,

the armed men in green,

are now on the scene.

vote how you will,

it's like taking a pill,

it goes down your throat,

but when making your vote,

the outcome is clear,

as the count end draws near,

t'was just a placebo,

like Uighers on Weibo,

nothing will change,

the end's all arranged,

t'will all end in tears,

for another five years. 

 

Time will tell if the dire warnings were correct - if the whole election is but a charade, and the promised democracy is only a false façade! Poor Thailand if so! But reading all the items on Bangkok Post and the comments over the last months, and seeing how the dealings with political parties are very one-sided and the government attacks on them that have taken place one can only see attempts to get rid of opposition and as Bangkok Post says - hang onto power!
