gajanan mishra (3rd April 19sixty / Tikapali, Patnagarh, Balangir, Odisha, India now at Tapobana, Titilagarh, Odisha, India)
Are peole and citizens beggars?
Why are you giving them
Laptops, fans, grinders, cycles, mobiles
Television sets, rice, gold thalis free
O leaders, what for these corrupt practices?
Whose materials whose money? you are giving to helpless
To fetch votes from them why?
O, learders, play within the level.
Surely you involve yourselfs in malpractice
And showing same path to others
Remember, powers, positions are not for all days
Remember, people in general are not foolish, bogus
Remember, They would teach you a lesson in due course
Promises are good for the doing better works
But distributing articles to catch votes definitely worst
For the smooth functioning of democratice system.
