Banana Republics

Snatching power to become ruler
By any of the hooks and crooks
Who cares about the citizen here?
They anyways like the gimmicks
Patriotism and nation building is
Far away from their favorite flicks
What people feel, think or suffer
Has nothing to do with their tricks
Only purpose sounds fascinating
To the politicians, their side kicks
Make merry become rich overnight
In most of these banana republics!

Benefit of Doubt

Benefit of Doubt

We two always were friends
Seldom did we have dispute
He had his interest and aura
I too had held my own repute

He often admired my actions
I too lavishly praised his deeds
From my side, it was self-less
His side too I thought it indeed

Soon we both had fallen apart
He was elevated in his position
Did not like my ways any more
I took it a temporary phenomenon

But then he started to exhibit
In so many words and ways
His attitude and the new vanity
Through his actions and deeds

I had realised it hard way now
He was being a bit jealous to me
After he found that I never flatter
Yet he may have expected from me

I still think he would now change
Do some thinking and introspection
And realise he was on wrong side
If not, I give him benefit of doubt

Buddhan

Buddhan, the rickshaw puller
Worked very hard all day
For making two meals a day
He did not prosper
With extra hours of work
For he drank alcohol
Almost every evening

He produced a kid a year
This time it was fourth
His wife dissatisfied and angry
Pleaded in her own way
Buddhan! Give up alcohol
Buddhan angrily resented
He supported himself, said
If he worked all day
He needs a drink hard

One day he was detected
With multiple sickness
And one day, very soon
He died in harness

  28.     

Call it A day

Oh my mother!
Why you married me off?

I had tried to live
Every moment of life
I thought always
I lived like a good wife
A good woman and
A good family person

To my best of ability
I made the sacrificed
My time, desire and comfort
I am still misunderstood

I have had enough
I wanted to continue
But now, call it a day!
