The Election set a trend Poem by Rm.Shanmugam Chettiar.


Despite dismal performances,
The mule has been reelected
By the mixed population
Of horses and mules in the stable.

The whole mules voted for the mule.
The opponent horse lost the race.
The horses divided themselves
And voted on ideology.

The victory of the mule is
Due more to the racial backing
Than to the performance reckoning,
An ugly trend set for the first time.
