Convicted politicians poem (for corruption)


Out of the shame that covers me
Black as tar from head to toe
I curse all those who brought this to be
My imprisonment in this dingy hole

In the heavenly clutch of political opportunity
I have grabbed much and the cauldron licked about
Under the arc lights of immense political power
My head was safe and always so unbowed

Beyond this prison of kicks and jeers
Looms nothing but the comfort of my 'earned', estate
And going out hence after hopefully a few years
You will find me as usual arrogant and quite unafraid

It matters not how crooked or straight
The path of justice and the accusations scroll
I will always be the boss of my fate
And the incorrigible captain who never reforms!
