Ballots or Bullets

A country’s genesis
Monarchical rule
The people had a few options

Eternal servitude
Ballots
Or Bullets

They chose Ballots
The King picked Bullets
A birthing of a wolf nation

Breaking the chains
Baring teeth
Bullet for Bullet

The shepherd fell
Victorious wolves
The old wolves then

Gave us the choice
Ballots or Bullets
Pay attention now or fight later
