Still, they’re talking about what we’re going to do
they say “we” but who
they mean is They – I mean the other
“They” – who say they have a mandate.

“This is what we want you to do”
but then they say we’re the people
and it’s clear we don’t know what we want to do.
Still, they’re talking about what we’re going to do.
