The Pawns - Poem by Perveiz Ali

The Pawns Who you are to your leaders? Naught but a vote to be courted? Once secured and rank obtained, They then bully you for petty gains? Buried in a sea of atrocities and humiliations, No shame is displayed by them, At dismal failure of their promises. Why should they feel shame? As you repeat this unending cycle, A willing participant in this insanity. You are in a mire, you helped create, Where fascists and murderers are torch bearers. Projected as messiahs for restless souls, You the voters aiding the killers, Of your conscious and noble soul. ©Perveiz Ali
