Theme: Satire

White Collar

Facing frequent music
In the amphitheater of the governments
Thick-skinned bellied babus
Regale themselves with entertainments.

Some of them like dancing
To the harsh tune of a strict taskmaster
While some stoop down
To a dereliction of duty so fast and faster.

Bosses have to face snubs
Though a powerful pillar as a scarecrow
Tethered in a cemented turf
Day & night's hard toil mopping their brow.

With white collar jobs
They do but executing it at a snail's pace
In a defunct work culture
Stinking badly now with blots of disgrace.
