Sonnet: State Elections In Tamil Nadu,2006 - Poem by Dr. A.Celestine Raj Manohar M.D.,

Some leaders think they’re made by own effort;
Some try predicting election results;
Wealth ill-gotten, some think voters are dirt;
New leaders, God uniquely catapults!

But leaders come to rule by Will of God;
If bad, they bring about their own downfall;
Some even get a ruthless earthly rod;
Some good ones listen to God’s early call!

Accursed are they who hurt their poor brethren;
God spares no one for making grievous faults;
The righteous rule for long and get heaven;
The honest, humble-hearted, God pole-vaults!

The head that wears the crown must wisely rule;
The proud and evil-minded turns a fool!

    Dear Frank.
    That was a befitting, frank and great critque that elates the 'sometimes, sinking spirits of the poet' who 'fights a futile battle in life' trying to bring order into things that he perceives!
    Thank you,
    Dr John Celes
