Why can't they Build Schools?

Why can’t they build more schools
to save the head of the future?
why can’t they build the nation
the way it’s supposed to be?
why can’t they build more schools
to accommodate the destitute, the poor
and the illiterate people of our land?
why can’t they waste the treasury
of the country
on the fast diminishing health
of the nation?
why can’t they invest in the welfare
of the citizenry?
why can’t they build talents
to help re- structure the future
of our land?
why can’t they build universities
that will be free for everyone
to attend and attain knowledge;
not the wretched, dampened
and corruptible structures, we have here and there?
why can’t they build the nation?
why can’t they build the state?

they are relaxing in those smug rooms,
splurging the treasury of our state on mere renovations:
the renovation of solid buildings
with already fashionable suite of furnitures-
that’s of no use; they’re cowards
who are there to lavish the state
and stripped it bare and naked.

why can’t they spend more to renovate
the country; the dampened state of our nation?
why can’t they build more solid
roads; and not the portable ones
that are stealing the smooth journeying of cars?-
motorists are in fog and trouble
why can’t they be wise?
why can’t they be nice?
why can’t they stuffed the cake and rice
of our country
so that the people can devour it to their satisfaction?-
we’re not satiated… why can’t they
hear and hearken to the crack voices
of the lovesick masses?
are they daft and deaf mute?
why can’t they…?

Why can't they Build Schools?

Artist's Description

The leaders are splurging money at will without taking into cognizance the interests of the dying people whose mandates they are claiming to be representing.
