Black Sheep of Politics

All confined to their political world
Of lucrative schemes and programmes
Fetching lots of profits and interests
Veiled in their invisible selfishness
They have an eyewash for the masses.

Theirs is a kleptomaniac tendency
To commit and omit scams and embezzlement,

From the underworld of swindling thoughts
Backed by their anti social elements
Democratically christened as young leaders
Of the coming generation of their voters
Aggravating the national affairs and issues
The country stands faced with today.

Having an axe to grind or for minting money,
Their idealistic and ideological standpoints
Their compassionate hearts to social service
Their creative mind to think of the poor
For their uplift and betterment in society
Values of humanity, morality and nationalism
Ennobled sense of well sustained leadership
Characterized, chiseled and ornamented by
Exemplary commitment, spectacular dedication
And above all, their patriotic loyalty to the nation
Are what they sacrifice or shun or drop now
To the altar of dark politics of contemporary India
Staggering stuck in mud of crimes and corruptions
