Another struggle for independence

Another struggle for independence

It’s hard to accept but our blood sucking politicians are a reflection of our collective attitude and mindset. We ought to stop accepting abuse of power and anarchy. A second “struggle” for freedom is needed—one that frees us from our own apathy, cowardice and passivity. Only when we’re freed this way can we ever become free from the greed of the current crop of politicians.

Politicians

Politicians

A filthy, appalling breed
that is sucking our nation dry
by their abysmal greed
while the rest of us cry

As long as they succeed
Mumbai will never be Shanghai
I think it’s only when they die
will we heave a collective sigh
