The colour yellow

autumn

A rally of solidarity was held.
For two days the people were united.
To rally for clean elections, clean government.
A unity forged for love of country.

Banned by the police, yet they marched.
Called an illegal gathering, they held firm.
Legal action can be taken against them.
A sea of yellow t-shirts marching told the story.

The people are standing up today.
Voicing out against the one elected.
The people have reached their limit.
They cannot turn away from the truth.

Tomorrow the people celebrate National Day.
It is somewhat muted because of the rally.
This rally only voices out the people’s concerns.
In hope their government listen to the rumblings.
