Captain Crazy - Poem by Aniruddha Pathak

He knows how biting bouncers to bowl,
To cool rivals who in pressure crawl,
There’s pace, guile, seam and swing,
And Yorkers toe-crushing,
Generals thence too keen, called foul, foul!
_____________________________________________ ___________
Let democracy be damned. Pakistan’s Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) chief,
Imran Khan, former cricket captain, has always relished tormenting
his rivals with pace bowling. He still continues in similar vein, now
joined by a cleric, Qadri. Connived at by the army, he has pushed
back Prime Minister Nawaz Sherif.

The captain was instrumental in winning the 1992 ODI World Cup,
and thinks ‘Naya (new) Pakistan’ can be built without concrete plans.
What so be, who so wins, the people of Pakistan might lose the
match in the end.
