The Elections Times


In this season of elections,
   It’s about making the best selections
The traders of votes
  Stoop to all tricks unworthy of quote
We seldom make fair choices
  Later cry crocodile tears and make noises
Give a thought and vote
    Don’ get carried away by notes
Make a conscience decision
   Best suited for worthy positions

  10. Hi Rahul, this is such an apt, suitable poem for all Safricans to read because we are having our national elections next month. And so far, the political parties have all been trying everything to lure votes. As you say 'tricks unworthy'. There is far too much corruption involved sadly.

  15. Very nice! 'To the point' words! First people should take the effort to go our and vote. The political parties target poor people with fake promises because they are the ones who vote promptly, than literate people. We are lazy and think that all politicians are same and stay away from booths, which is very very wrong. When we have got a change to Change India, we have to take action.
