My nation looks like an evening smoke
rising from the corn on the cob
They stole the bread from the poor’s bowl
and played a game foul
I know it has taken a lot of toll
to win that election poll
It must have taken a certain level of expertise
to snatch first and then sympathise
And without a doubt a skilful jugglery of lures and bait
to build an empire out of other’s work, blood and sweat
With great power never came great responsibility
but a raging hunger for arbitrary authority
The lawmakers have only flauted the laws
the whole system is flawed
Careful custodians of power have forgotten whom they’ve pledged to
then what shall a common man is left to do?
Wonder I, whose purpose are they filling
in whose name are they stealing?
How they get sleep at night
being the reason of else’s plight?
How they present a posture serene
with intentions so mean?
And then a few do faced arrests and enquiries
the nation looked with hopeful eyes
But nothing lasted longer
they had built a web stronger with powerful sponsors
They were out and unfettered
justice was left torn and battered
And each day my nation fumes
in the grasp of monster that looms
