A take on how politics is adding 1+1 to get 11

poem politics rant

It was great learning maths
To see how sums were done
But never in our times
We saw 1+1 = eleven

It’s impossible you may say
It has been proved in no books
But it occurs elsewhere
In a nation that hangs by tenderhooks

Here colors mix to form festivals
Cleaning the darkness with light
It was joy, happiness and prosperity
Until amongst ourselves we began to fight

It is the best belonging
To be counted amongst the indians
We would have guarded the pride with life
Had it not been for the corrupt politicians

They beg, borrow, steal our money
To cheat us in the next elections
This country would have been better
Without these selfish politicians

They’re the biggest traitors in history
They run the country and sell it
Amassing wealth seems their only goal
Greed sells the soul, fills the pocket

The progress of the country
Is maintained by the young
While those who can change lives
Have their morals stench of dung

If the office still has the politicians
And he says how the country Is run
Then of our progress i say
Surely, 1+1 must be eleven
