Police Force

a poem by Ramachandran Nair R

Poverty at heart with arrogant power in hands,
Overlooking crimes and looking for money,
Living on bribes over growing crimes all around,
Impoverishing hapless citizens with a tyrant’s hand,
Caring little of citizen’s welfare at large,
Encouraging corruption and crimes at all levels.

Favouring those with bag full of currency notes to part with,
Order of the day has turned out to be in money-making,
Rarely finding criminals and punishing them,
Caring only money and ruling political powers of all kinds,
Ever widening the gaps of the governed and the government.
