Corruption Was In Past - Poem by hasmukh amathalal

It is moving very fast
It exists even today
Only with different approach and ways

It will remain in future in the name of commission
I am not very much sure for its complete omission
Old guards reflected honesty in wearing white cloths
New breed is built in micro culture and accepts it as inevitable oath

“Hell with your school of thoughts” one of the leader confided
“What morality has to do with in and out” he privately boosted
We are not sages or men from royal back ground
This is new field and with great struggle we have found

I thought for a second and agreed
There can not be limit for greed
Even infants need good feed
These people are matured enough to have more needs

Let it not be completely removed
Let us accept it as part of system and need not to be proved
Our ancestors did it and we may pursue it too
Why not we admit it on face as very much true?

“Criticize no man for his faults” I remembered hymn
“It is like rubbing wound with salts”
The moment accusation is made in public
The crusade becomes farce and symbolic
