In the corrupt countries, like mine
positioned officials trade on rules,
Sell convenience, earn bad money
abuse positions, make system fool.
Bureaucrats, police, politicians
think mighty, do things above law;
make money for their lavish living
near and dear also, they reward.
People pay bribe to get work easy
and face minimum harassment;
Officials accept for lavish needs
and to make their living decent.
Authority’s laxity, indifference,
complex rules, no transparency;
give officials chance to exploit
innocence, difficulty, urgency.
They relax rules for received bribe
for granting work, quota, license;
avoidance of punishment or fine
evading tax and Govt. payments.
Scammers, black money earners
grab resources, depriving the mass;
capture power and manipulate
to force higher price, by poor class.
Deputed to defend law and people;
to the citizens ought to be good.
But hidden outlaw rob their money;
are ‘the white collared Robin Hood’.
