TAHRIR SQUARE: birthplace of Egyptian democracy?


A million people filled the square.
They came from every walk of life.
It's said democracy was there.
That couldn't be, there was no strife.

The people had a single goal,
To from the cup of freedom sip.
They came as one to overthrow
The head of their dictatorship.

Cooperation was the drink
That filled the cup they passed around.
It drugged them so they had to think,
"This time we stand on common ground."

"The Man" is gone, what's their intent?
Here too will people vote for 'me',
And watch Egyptian government
Descend into democracy?
