Power in Your Vote

You are very powerful now

Powerful than all others

Your vote makes you the king maker

Leaders bow before you

Beg for your votes.

You choose wisely

The one who works for you all

The one who is not a criminal

Who is least selfish

Who uses many crores

Paid by you as taxes

For the benefit of all.

Those who want to be leaders

Lure you with baits like

Caste, religion, monetary benefits

Tell them you are not for sale.

Benefits they offer last a day or two

Foolish acceptance of them

Makes you their slave for five years

Empowers them to handle your money

Either for your welfare

Or their own welfare.
