Road Blocks - Poem by M. Asim Nehal

When democracy dances on streets
And a capital city holds the
Parliamentary sessions
All road leading to your goals are block

You have only one way to go
And that is to dance with them
Dance to their tune
And listen to their music

This gimmick is to show
Innocent voters and common people
That some favourable policies
are underway for them
Whereas they chalk out their share

When you see the sea of people
When you see the roads are jam
When you see people are struggling
to move ahead
then you must sit back at home
watch the circus going inside the parliament

    Your poem reminded me of dancing bears, unsure of what they're doing but certain of the rewards.
    Well written, and rather than a solution, your poem displays resignation- -entirely appropriate considering the subject matter.
