This chair has wings of vulture,
laden with ladles all over
Ladles that adds nothing to beauty
ladles laden with heavy bureaucracy

Behind the ladles, middle the seat
lies a device, if you can see

The eye that sees via it's "circle"
an invisible mouth that do not speak
but daggers the tongue behind the wings
The wings of Vulture

The wings should set you free
The chair needs to reinvent
itself and the entire nation

awake and await
The page will turn
A new Page will turn

Nepotism and Red tap-ism
need to be clipped
they encroach like the vulture's wing
gulps, usurps and swings

The voices have began to emerge
and chair would need to change
Let the freedom
finally beget
let this nation celebrate

The page will turn soon
Politics need to change its face
The powerful chair needs a haul
it needs renewal & upgrade.

let God set this sail.
O' rays of light, dawn upon my nation
Give my country a new hope of dawn
a new sunshine, glory & jubilation

[This year, in all its likelihood, a page will turn in the book of Indian politics. The downfall of Congress, or rise of Common Man AKA AAM Aadmi Party [AAP] or BJP gaining momentum with it's #Abki baar Modi Sarkar campaign will see a more flourishing space in politics, winning more seats. Time will tell. All I pray, my dear lord, let my nation stay awake.]
