Under the Boot of the Madman by Raymond A. Foss
The struggle for freedom
cloaked in his repression
the protesters taken away
abducted in the night

The people fearful
hearing mixed messages
lies and the truth
a blur in their sight

Under the boot of the madman
fighting for power
relenting not an inch
in his denying their freedoms

Mocking the world
a thumb in their eyes
dropping bombs on his people
fighter planes in the sky

Only action will break the yoke of bondage
freeing the people, the captives
from the terror of the tyrant
needing to act, to set them free
standing with the martyrs
dying in the streets
