Doom - Poem by Vishnu Sampoorn

See no evil, Hear no evil,
Speak no evil, that we learnt
That is why we did not notice
When the whole country burnt

With the lava of corruption,
emanating fire and fume
Grasping all in its flames
Bringing this world to doom

Not a single job can be
Got without connections,
Nor can the children see
A future without donations

Rapport with the right person
Is a must to rise upward
Who does not care for it
Does not go forward
Corruption, Match-fixing, Donation,
Approaches and Bribery,
Is there anything further yet
Left for us to see

There is a need for revolution
Corruption which will beat
Which will douse this lava
And its mighty fume and heat

Someday all this will change
And for the better, hope I,
So the coming generations
Will not have to sit and cry;

When all will be educated
From the king to the urchin,
The world will then be
A paradise to live in.
