A Failed Leader - Poem by M. Asim Nehal
Is he the one who lead ruthlessly?
With iron fist and no mercy!
Thinking poor people as “bunch of junk”
Who is arrogant, boastful and self centered
Rules are made at will
Child, aged and innocents are mauled and killed
Life of humans are driven like cattle
No plea is heard nothing bother him or rattled
He accumulate all power
Lived his life in high built tower.
His high thinking raises him above all
and least bothered about the people’s fall.
He nurtured malpractices to stay in power
Corruption is spread all over and every hour
In his bubbly life, he forgets to take note off
which kept slipping away and death is nearing top.
Between life and death
Where death waits patiently,
He made everyone to dance to his tune,
and obey his orders unrelently.
Towards the end when finally life surrenders,
Death take two steps back to teach him a lesson.
These shameless leaders still strive for power
By forgetting life is nothing but borrowed hours from the death
Finally the curtain falls on their life’s show
They get recorded in history book as “Leaders- who failed”
