“Voter Mela”

Democracy gives an opportunity to vote

There are many to pollute your decision

Goons and criminals too

Come to you with folded hands

They enact humility and humbleness

They offer drink and money

They promise to fulfill every want

They entice you with caste, religion, region

They offer you everything free at your doorstep

All this to manage several crores you paid as taxes

To exploit you for next five years

To rob the future of your children.

Voter beware

Do understand this cruel political business

Think well about the contestants

There may not be a good one

Carefully find the better of the bad lot

Do cast your vote to

The one who is capable

The one who is good

The one who is less selfish

The one who works for all.
