Politics

Politics means the art of governance,

the elite act of managing cities.

It is so unfortunate that today

the word is associated with all things smutty.

 

History teaches us about leaders of old,

Who were compassionate, honest and flexible.

The men and women who ruled us then,

had integrity and were accessible.

 

When did the task of serving the people

become a job to increase personal wealth?

How did the need to help others get translated

into a game of power and stealth?

 

Isn’t the uncaring, irresponsible public

the reason for what the politicians are doing?

We don’t hold them accountable,

we allow them to go on looting.

 

Although the scenario looks bleak now,

I am sure it would change soon.

The people will awaken and arise,

and the leaders will sing a different tune !
