JH Sayyar's Sonnets

37
Politicians corrupt: all false promise makers,
No pleasure-light seen darkness everywhere,
Here rules the Government always caretakers,
Do give money will be legal your illegal affair.
Alas! I have not changed so many a shoes,
As we have changed leaders in fifty years,
Most costly edibles due to the leader’s rues,
O God, come and see each eye full of tears.
People come and go state remains the same,
None goes with money except your deeds,
Do not mar your future just due to false fame,
If you do nothing it will grow more seeds.

The leaders make corruption and loot the state,
Then the sidereal time fixes their gallows-date.
