Democracy is no good either


Yes my dear love, the struggle continues
You are not going to have real freedom and dues
What do we have in store for our people to view?
Only limited people may be enjoying at he cost of few

It is as if wind has spread its mysterious dragnet
The thin air has decided to shape the people’s fate
“Suffer the destiny and loose the freedom”
This is the slogan now and may be considered as wisdom

What were our forefathers fighting for?
Why did their blood flow on floor?
Were they stupid to fight as freedom fighter?
Same phase is causing humor and laughter

Not Africa and other parts alone
The vultures are same and not gone
They follow the opportunity to rule
People are emotionally weak and fool

They promise moon in day time
Bread and butter for sure in times to come
There is promise for shelter and home
People go blind and senselessly welcome

Once power is in hand, they turn elected dictator
Threaten the lives and spread the terror
People face bloodshed and prison terms
They have no where to go but wait for tears return

Democracy is no good either
India too face same kind of intelligent actors
They will deplete country’s exchequer by false promises
Poor may stand as looser with hopeless eyes
