Politicians And Parliament - Poem by Vinod Sharma
Politicians fume when shown the mirror,
But will not fumigate Parliament ever;
We are supreme! they scream in horror,
Even thieves, rapists and criminals clever.
Unelected tyrants! challenge us not,
We are the voice of the indigent lot;
Ask not why the PM hasn't fought,
Or even the opposition's main mascot!
Parliament, recall, is the people's temple,
Their will outsiders have no right to tamper;
We high priests can loot and trample,
You keep voting us, so shut up and scamper.
Join us, they taunt, if you want to see change,
Coming from them it does sound strange.
Their game is of power and the play is of gain;
The Church has appropriated God again.
Poet's Notes about The Poem
Unfortunately, politicians across the political spectrum seem to have ganged up to assert the supremacy of Parliament - and thereby their own - in order to stall any changes that will hold them accountable. As of now, it is virtually impossible to convict any political leader for corruption and much else. They have framed rules and corrupted various institutions to ensure that they are beyond and above the reach of law.
