Dirty Politics

Like goats being led to slaughter,
By the very people who raised her.
Politicians keep butchering their own ideology,
Justifying everything by teleology.
Horsetrading is just a part of the game,
Pandits, media houses ‘praise’ the same.
Dirty politics is no more a surprise,
they do it all right before our eyes.
And what we do?
Label them as modern-day Chanakya,
Give their cunningness respect,
If that’s our reaction,
Why they’ll ever stand up for what’s morally correct?
Government is government,
we must make a fuss,
for We Are The People,
and as The People, we must!
It’s always a lose-lose for us.
We choose a lesser evil,
But he ends up joining hands with worse.
Our silence, for our country, is the worst curse.
