A Leader - The Need of The Hour

The necessity to live with vices
Leading them into criminal cases
And to face any such adverse situation
Join the political scenario of the nation

Aggro and violence, looting without shame
Creating fear among citizens to gain fame
A political mask as a self-protection scheme
Khadi attire and “Social Service” is its name

They are up committing any sort of nonsense
To survive, just ready to erase every evidence
Capable of questioning basic man’s existence
Eliminating all those offering any resistance

No conscience in resorting to crime
No commitment to society any time
No responsibility towards the nation
No hesitation to create any commotion 

Here so happy, only is fraudulent might
Iniquitous, reprobate rot rule the upright
Imperials have no interest in citizens’ plight 
They turned perfidious loot all day and night

With tolerance and for truth you fought
Oh! Mahatma, what is it that you taught
In this scenario, see, how we are caught
Do you still feel your principles are right?

Whole system now chaotic and corrupt
Though we are gearing up finally to fight
A Leader of your stature is yet to erupt
With ideas and thoughts, apt and correct

We need a leader!
With monumental patience
One with an ability to distill
A true vision for the nation

Standing up for what he believes
Through Compassion and courage
Perfect in understanding needs of the nation
And involving everyone to help him do a job

Integrity and selflessness, frighteningly smart
Tons of animal energy, immense execution skills
Determination not to accept failure with
Proper knowledge and dedication of purpose

Implacability to keep up what is true
With a healthy disgust for bureaucracy,
Honest, straightforward and future focused,
Rapidly decisive and rigorous in implementation
