DILLI


Darkest night over here
Government is no more a care taker
Bug they are, a shop of profit maker
Here in India, at dilli here..

Calm breeze whispered
O fearing, why you feared?
A saint sat whispering
Ready to give offering
Come on, come on

He unfed to lead
Unveiled, he is a rising sun
Remove the bitter wall
Come on, come on
Heartily Support Kejriwal.

Dilli=Delhi
