Mr. Politician

When most mortals succumb to temptation,
Then why do we expect poor Mr. Politician to be an exception?
When government coffers are open for him,
Then why should he bother about idealistic whims?

When for everything sumptuous, he has developed a taste,
Then why shouldn't he utilize the funds raised by the state?

When for winning in the elections, he had pretended to be a loving husband and a caring father,
Then why shouldn't he satisfy his wily wife, salacious son and domineering daughter?

When he has to pay for his son's debauchery and find a billionaire for his daughter to marry,
They why shouldn't the loving daddy, use the common man's hard earned money?

When he has to buy his wife expensive jewelry for her to look good on ‘Page 3'
They why shouldn't he manipulate state machinery?

When he needs money not only to maintain his mistress but also to silence her, when she causes distress,
Then why shouldn't the worried man, use public funds and relieve himself of the stress?

So, when most mortals succumb to temptation,
Then why do we expect poor Mr. Politician to be an exception?
When government coffers are open for him,
Then why should he bother about idealistic whims?
