Anna Hazare Fasting

Anna Hazare fasting,
Common people heading towards
As for a lust to be national hero or heroine,
Donning the Aam Admi Party of Kejriwal
The MBA man Marwari not,
But a dramabaz, a nautankiman
And Anna giving a lead to,
A former army jeep-driver
Turned into a freedom-fighter-cum-Gandhist,
On the dais,
The photo journalists and the lensmen
running for cover and coverage,
Some socialites too mare there
And he posing, acting to fast
And keeping too
And the men trying to persuade him
As he is gearing up against the graft cases,
Corruption overtaking
And breaking not his fast,
His health ay deteriorate,
So the daughters from the neighbourhood
Standing in line
To make him take juice
And he taking to
Break his fast.
In this age, who makes one drink a glass of juice,
I too want,
But who will give it t0 you
And that too one cannot expect from
Modern-age daughter-in-law and grandaughters
As moms debar them from?

poet Sarah Flower Adams

O Love! thou makest all things even
In earth or heaven;
Finding thy way through prison-bars
Up to the stars;
Or, true to the Almighty plan,
That out of dust created man,
