Suman Kumar Das


Burning Bribery


A never ending chain
Enlarged its web
From ground-floor to roof-top
Of each building
Everywhere in our society.

An inerasable stigma
An incurable infection
Leading to corruptions
Here and there, all over
In our modern era.

How shame!
Laws and orders made,
Promoted lectures, speeches
And social awareness,
Still all efforts in vain.

Douse who will
This burning bribery?
