    Hello Veeraiyah, there is so much i appreciate about this poem, firstly the composition. The when's are almost a return to the beginning and the present (a pendulum of time) . I also like that you do not go off on confusing tangents which so often happens in political writes. You stick to the facts as you see them and use great lines such as...

    shoes laced with corrupt cattle dung, and...team that builds white elephants

    but my favourite two which seem to lead to and fro to me are...forgotten script and in cloudy mind, and make for the betterment of existing humor? ......tyvm karen (Report) Reply

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
