A Democracy! - Poem by Ramesh T A

Democratic rule is good as it is by, for and of the people;
Democracy is the choice of majority to govern all people;
But in reality is there a democracy perfect in all respects -
In Canada, America, Ireland, Britain, France, India or Japan?

Democracy is based on ideologies like socialism and capitalism;
Democracy of strong economy and military is democratic dictator;
Democracy of technology, civilisation and modernity is inhuman;
Can democracy sans culture, justice, liberty rule a nation humanly?

Bureaucrats are the implementing authority of democratic plans;
Democratic servants have become the masters of people now;
Instead of the people, they are serving their selves by corruption;
If so, can there be real developments in any democratic country?

Secular or religious, can a democracy honestly govern people if
It has politics, education, trade sans principles, character, morality?

    'Taxation without Representation, ' they cried,
    For their Cause was just,
    Then, Representation without Taxation, they tried
    In the name of Public Trust.

    That's when Democracy died!
