Trouble Monger

  Who is an Indian
This is a relevant
Question of Questions!

No not a Hindu
For he or she is a trouble-monger
Saffronized and communal
And definitely not
If you are even a marginal supporter
Of Hindu causes

For to be an Indian
You have to be a patriotic foreigner
One who has sacrificed household chores
For a life of blissful sacrifices

Because a foreigner's sacrifice
Is worth its weight in gold
A born Indian Parliamentarian
Of fifty years standing
Is of no consequence
And viewed with suspicion
But a Born Again Indian
Sonia Gandhi alias Suryakanti
Is a shining star on the
Indian political firmament

A Terrorist Indian is only making just demands
But an agitating student is disturbing the peace
For who is he or she, only one in a million!

Are they going to garner votes for you at home or abroad
No never cry the secular crowd
But a Jihadic Terrorist
Can garner votes for you both at home and abroad
A pat on the back from the Human Rights Commission
A seat in the Security Council
And also a Nobel Peace Prize to boot

Oh the wonders of being an Indian citizen
It is worth writing reams about
Crying tons about
Oh what it is to be a Born Again Indian (Foreign)
It is Bliss, More Bliss and Total Bliss.
