Rm.Shanmugam Chettiar. (June 15,1942 / Aravayal, karaikudi, Tamil Nadu, South India)
History Would Relieve or Punish
Karna tolerated Dduryodhana
And stood by him in all deeds of evil
As Duryodhana made him his equal
And a king from a mere charioteer’s son.
An epitome of gratitude was he.
Next to him is Man Mohan Singh, the clean,
Who tolerated Madam Sonia Gandhi,
Who kept him as the Prime Minister.
History has punished Soviet Stalin.
History has punished the Hindu Manu.
History has relieved Greek Socrates.
History has relieved Scientist Galileo.
Fidel Castro claimed history would relieve him.
Man Mohan Singh would be remembered
For his corrupt government’s awakening
The people to overthrow corruption.
