Now here’s the disgrace and shame data:
One third of our MPs and MLAs
Have criminal cases tainting their strata
Now here’s the squint under the carapace:
The shameful total is one thousand four fifty
Where 6 are accused of well, rape
On 75 of them, dacoity charges are in shape
145 are even charged with theft, so petty!
While over 350 charged with attempt to murder
140 were successful in committing the murder
But 90 preferred enigmatic kidnapping
Yet all of them are hip and happening
But the problem is not merely fiduciary
For legislators even dictate the Judiciary!
Dara Singh’s health gives way at eighty-three,
Deteriorating progressively in these afflictive times.
Alongside the Net Foreign Direct Investment we see
Plummeting by 37% this quarter, to $3.2 bn it declines.
Still, to Olympics, a large contingent we’ll send off,
For in our input – output ratio we are usually odd.
So while praying for a medal or two to the almighty God,
We’ll dispatch eighty-one athletes; now don’t scoff!
But here’s the news that should take the cake:
The money on anti-terrorism purchases babus make,
Purchasing speedboats at exorbitant prices,
Money from terrorism’s one of the new national vices
Shaking my disbelieving head, I chew a blade of grass
And conclude, these babus need a kick on their a_se.
A gloom of pessimism marks Friday the thirteenth.
Our MPs and MLAs are jailbirds in the making.
And this we’ve known for times umpteenth,
But only talk, there’s no step we’ll be taking.
Our judiciary’s governed by hooligans it’s clear,
And they themselves seem somewhat spuriuos.
And that makes it much darker and insidious,
Plus it’s all getting worse from year to year.
A well-fed Dara Singh has left metaphorically,
This malnourished and skinny place geographically.
FDI too is beating a rapid and certain retreat,
And at the Olympics as always, we’ll be dead meat.
Worse, only you and I are given to bemoaning all this.
Naked netas, base babus, jaundiced judges(?) are in fits.
If you haven’t already, then you must read the ‘Foreword’ and ‘She hands over the baton’
