A Corrupt Politician Committed Suicide


When the corrupt politician
was shut behind the bars,
he roared in anger in a language
couched in figures and metaphors:
" From the cremains of my body,
one thousand of me will be erupting
to serve the cause of the people".

When this one robber single-handedly
looted the coffers of the State
and got graft for the jobs given to the poor,
the people reel in poverty
and the youths die untimely.
"How could this nation face
one thousand of his incarnates? "
This question made one of his followers
sleepless, and in a frenzied mood,
he slit his leader's throat
and cried aloud for his suicide,
saving the judges from the strains
of bending the laws to give him bail.

    All corrupt politicians should have the same fate as this one, I agree. Maybe then those who run for office will be wise to not follow in their footsteps lest the same fate befall them. It would be a warning to all those who come
    after them. Great poem depicting reality. Thank you, RoseAnn74111 (Report) Reply

    From the cremains of my body,
    one thousand of me will be erupting
    to serve the cause of the people.
    i loved the rhetoric language.but i found it humorous too.

    A great poem with a very important social message! The corrupt will be punished and if they punish themselves with their own hands the better.It saves the tax payer's money! Think you very much for opening our eyes to the workings of the political mind! (Report) Reply
