The Red Tide's Wane

(In Ci Lyric Verse)

The Red Tide fades as ordained,

its time now past

Signs of decline make ever so visible

the wicked Party's evil

Shameless are the acts, done for power

Greedy officials courting danger

Minds devoid of good thoughts

More high-handedness

breeds only more resentment

Who'd want to still persecute?

The day of reckoning draws near
