A Tale of Fraud.


Hailed great once  

Being the wealthiest once

Finding listed in Billionaires  once .

Seems to be nowhere now.

 

Made money by hook

Won success by crook.

Reached the top by hooking.

Seems to be nowhere now.

 

Enacting rags to riches story.

selling snacks with all worry.

Turned away by banks is a story.

Managed to rise up

 

Getting money from the poor

say five, ten, dollars for sure

Got deposits all over.

Manipulated them to rise above.

 

Went round  the streets in a bike

owned a fleet of air planes  to strike .

transformed into a character whom all liked

Rose to great heights all at once.

 

Lived in a two room hut  in the earlier years

Bought a  sprawling bungalow  in 270 acres  in the years

radiated with high spirit great cheer

Rose to great  heights all at once.

 

Law , was turned and twisted  with great diligence

Politicians   and officials recognised his relevance

He has got paid for his indulgence .

Would be behind the bars very soon. Feiffer-fraud-panel1

The Gift Of The Colonial rule.


Harping on this particular day

I am almost  in the center of the play

as the trend all the way

calls for a celebration  in the sway

I, unable to get along in the fray

pull back from the gay

that goes along with the day

which was not found  before in my country

but came into force with the British

coming into my land with a wish

and an intention to do trade

they did great transactions

took control of the land in course

left after much effort and struggle

by my countrymen and leaders

with a bag full of riches

a plunder so  to say

leaving behind a practice

alien to this ancient  country

that being an expression of  joy

with a pomp and splendour

not known to my  people

who  lived an austere life

adhering to  rituals and rites

chanting mantras and slokas

a tradition going beyond the ages

now getting decimated by unwanted extremes

that of ostentation  exhibiting a glare.rule_britannia_india_cartoon
