Democracy - Poem by Mohammad Akmal Nazir

(Democracy in India has become a fun for certain people. The nexus between the corrupt politicians and corrupt officers is responsible for degrading the values of democracy)

People's state for the people, by the people,
But what kind of people?
Criminals, robbers murderers, rapists,
And off-course the corrupts,
These are the people?
honest, simple and plain speaking
Feel suffocated,
If this is democracy,
I denounce it.

    Democracy is a sort of ruling system, in which people are counted but not measured. (Report) Reply

    Short and bittersweet! Excellent! ! I suspect democracy is not the best system anywhere anyway. Here it is supposed to be a democracy in a republic, which seems a much better idea, if only it were genuine. I enjoyed how you presented the sorry case, and suspect it is not too different here.
