CORRUPTION!

I saw the  justice in  a sale,

The buyers were dressed well.

I saw the black-white as brokers,

The sufferings looked as workers.

Iasked  about  the  non-fiction,

The voice raised, Corruption! Corruption!

 

I saw their drought,

Dry as barren throat.

I saw the faces pale,

Death, Hunger -- high scale.

I asked about the non-fiction,

The voice raised, Corruption! Corruption!

 

I saw the talent sitting sad,

Wet eyes, degree in hand.

I saw the asset busy in labour,

Books, Bags -- nothing to favour.

I asked about the non-fiction,

The voice raised, Corruption! Corruption!

 

 

 

I saw the revolutionised eye,

Hope, Love, Change at high.

I saw a face raising the hand,

To mix hate with the sand.

I asked about the non-fiction,

The voice raised, Say no to Corruption!
