A political poem I wrote when the current Govt was reelected in 2019 LS elections... Please read it only if you're neutral for it's satire/critical thinking ...
- Rajdeep Desai
Dear Leader Said in his Rally from a Height
To a Non believer
standing in a corner but with no Fright.
"I've used all my power, influence and might.
With no real competition, not even a close fight,
The decision is out in the clear daylight.
As I said before, I have won outright.
Your Limericks were poor now get out of my sight."
He replied with a smile
"People blindly believe in you
But that's not even the plight.
For this is 2019 and not a 2014's resurgence fight,
In 5 Yrs all they know is saffron's your favorite colour and your favorite candy is Mango bite.
What they don't realize is that
Religion won't feed them while the economy is tight,
But they're happy cheering for you,
When core institutions are endangered and jobs are out of sight,
When Farmers are dying and the Media is in your smite,
When extremists are the new rulers and
Lynching is alright.
But hey it can be a better 5 years ahead,
You never know right?
For now I've only got one question,
When's your next flight ? " :)
