COUP IN MYANMAR – Letter to the Editor

A Tale of Two Nations

2020 was the scene
Of critical elections in two nations
The United States and Myanmar

In both
The forces of democracy won
Resounding victories
And yet
The losers unceremoniously cried foul


Thank Goodness
For the military in the US
It stood firmly by the election results
And ushered out the loser

Myanmar though
Seemed a different story
As a coup has come into play
To rob its people
Of their hard-earned votes

But wait
Aren’t we in 2021?
We simply cannot say
We win some and lose some
Why can’t we win them all?

Let us all pray for democracy in Myanmar
To prevail.
