Mr. Politician

This poem is dedicated to corrupt politicians who bend the law for their relatives, throw extravagant wedding parties for their offspring, murder their mistresses, use public funds for the gratification of their own ever increasing needs.

The term 'Page 3' originates from colourful daily newspaper supplements appearing usually on the third page that chronicle cocktail parties and gossip of the glitterati – India's equivalent of tabloid journalism. Page 3 features color photo spreads of celebrities and the nouveau riche at parties. Those featured on page 3 include fashion designers, socialites, models, remix music divas, and the glamorous and rich. The flashy supplements are a mix of celebrity news, party pictures, movie gossip and stories.

1. Mr. Politician

When most mortals succumb to temptation,

Then why do we expect poor Mr. Politician to be an exception?

 When government coffers are open for him,

Then why should he bother about idealistic whims?

 

When for everything sumptuous, he has developed a taste,

Then why shouldn’t he utilize the funds raised by the state?

 

When for winning in the elections, he had pretended to be a loving husband and a caring father,

Then why shouldn’t he satisfy his wily wife, salacious son and domineering daughter?

 

When he has to pay for his son’s debauchery and find a billionaire for his daughter to marry,

Then why shouldn’t the loving daddy, use the common man’s hard earned money?

 

When he has to buy his wife expensive jewelry for her to look good on ‘Page 3’

Then why shouldn’t he manipulate state machinery?

 

When he needs money not only to maintain his mistress but also to silence her, when she causes distress,

Then why shouldn’t the worried man, use public funds and relieve himself of the stress?

 

So, when most mortals succumb to temptation,

Then why do we expect poor Mr. Politician to be an exception?

 When government coffers are open for him,

Then why should he bother about idealistic whims?
