Democracy

No, no, there are no blind men.
There are men and women.
And not six, but billions of them.
No, no they are not insane.
They can see and smell.
And they can hear and feel.
And, yes they can think.
But, are they required to be blind,
To have a difference of opinion?

But yes, there is an elephant,
Mighty and dark.
And there is chaos and confusion,
And perpetual difference of opinion..
So, for the lack of attention,
The elephant runs amok,
Helter-skelter and tramples people.
But in all this rampage,
There are few goons,
Who, put a facede of being always in control.
They call themselves politicians.

You ask, '' why the parody of an age old story.'
So, I impishly reply, ''This is a euphemism,
For the democracy in our country.''

    But, are they required to be blind,
    to have a bifference of opinion?

    just correct the bifference into difference!
