Statesman - Poem by Hans Raj Sharma

If your speech and actions afire,
Ablaze, spurt, flood, disintegrate,
Explode, instigate, set off, and prompt,
Activate, trigger, elicit, and conspire,
Plot, contrive, connive, and intrigue,
Designing against the dead bodies
That smells foul, resting in grave-yard;
Impelling and spurring into violence,
Then certainly you're a politician.
But, not a statesman, who transpires,
Inspires, respires, perspires, enthuses,
And ultimately runs out with a vision.

A statesman transpires,
Inspires, respires, perspires, enthuses,
And ultimately runs out with a vision.
