A POLITICAL PICTURE OF NATIONS!

Many nations have myriad politicians
Never the same as the politicians of Golden Age!
In all matters politics looms large;
Like a gas everywhere it occupies all.
In the hands of the politicians nation reels recklessly.

There was then democracy of the people;
Now there is Dictatorship of money.
They change everything at their will.
Right can be wrong, wrong can be right!
A lie said thousand times can become a truth!

Majority of the people vote for the wrong person.
Then that wrong person is the right leader!
How is it? Not to be criticised.
That is democracy accepted by all.

Philosopher Socrates never cared for money power
Nor he bothered about army of men too;
But he stood firmly for knowledge to the end.
Knowledge was power then;
Money is power now!

Socrates spoke on something;
Politicians speak on nothing.
They make big promises.
Catch votes with money,
But once to power they perform nothing.

Nothing will come out of nothing!
So, something will come out of something only!
Without investment no business can go on.
If something to be done something has to be given.
That is not corruption but it is commission.
To eliminate omission commission is instituted.
That is why hue and cry about commission
Or corruption are avoided and covered.

World nations had produced wonderful Epics in the past;
And no Epics worth remembering came thereafter!
Perhaps that is the reason they still rule the minds of all.
A new Epic has to be written to last longer so
In such a way as to replace the previous Epics.
Such an Epic can perhaps change the present day crises
And create a New World of love, liberty, justice,
Peace and prosperity people prefer most today!
