Someone Asked Me - Poem by Veeraiyah Subbulakshmi
When you walk on the red carpet with shoes laced with corrupt cattle dung,
When you stand near the podium with forgotten script and in cloudy mind,
When you promised to be the leader with unfulfilled plans,
Before you realize, the same people who loved you, will ridicule you.
When you are the head of the learned with confused knowledge,
When you are the leader of the team that builds white elephants,
When you are the representative of super power with no power,
What contribution can you make for the betterment of existing humor?
