Touchstone

a poem by Sony Dalia

Vast play ground…
players busy busting norms,
impressive match
practice challenges precept!

Leadership clueless,
rudderless ships drift,
rising lashing waves
harbourlights unsighted!

Remembered for votes,
saluted seductively, softly,
post poll scenario curious,
people, leaders poles apart!

A tsunami teaches a lesson,
a deluge devours the uncaring,
when muscle, money mock moralists…
public fury swamps the corrupt!

Jungle law a soap bubble,
crafty games unsubstantial,
wily tricks unwelcome here,
integrity touchstone, now!
