I’ve No Promises To Keep - Poem by Aniruddha Pathak

Son showeth arriving at the shore,
And daughter-in-law well at the door,
Hundred days are done in
And good days nowhere seen,
Dreams are dreams, delivered ne’er before.

Form: Limerick

Poet's Notes about The Poem

The first by-election was indicative enough. Poor voting of
less than 50 per cent for the second, and the result that
followed, showed that people’s enthusiasm had waned.
The hundred days in office have hardly helped people keep
their hopes alive. They now wonder if a barrage of verbose
promises during electioneering would be fulfilled. And the
promised good days are nowhere here nor in horizon.
