Poem on corruption in India

             “FISCAL FIASCO”
Income Tax, House Tax, Entertainment Tax,
Land Tax, Property Tax, Road Tax, Sales Tax,
Besides these Seven Taxes may be yet New Tax !
All these elments are to irk people and  vex !

 These are the imposed  burden for all of us,
 Salary and allowances earned thus face minus !
 People flounder to create extra income,
Commission and corruption are  its outcome !

Taxes, however, maintain the Exchequer,
Graceful Governance lavishly incur expenditure !
 Parliamentary perks are exuberantly high,
Nobody comes forward to interrogate why ?

Infructuous expenditure occurs in  security,
Only on so-called dignitary and celebrity !
 People in general remain always unsafe,
Facing robery, theft and unscrupulous rape !

Heads of the Nation who are called Patriotic,
Enjoy royalty  life-long even when walking with stick !
 One way, the clamour is to uproot poverty,
 All high quarters, enjoy wine-and-tea-party !

Nation seems helpless to maintain status quo,
Resultantly occurs always the fiscal fiasco !
 Poor public cannot snub, whatever may go,
All of us sustain, shall remain sustaining so !

Eclipsed is thus remaining the name of shame,
Fame of Dignitaries fractures its frame !
Actors, leaders, traders are very few patriotic, 
Graceless greed attracts them *hic et ubique !
*hic et ubique = here and everywhere.

 Poet-Ashwini Kumar Goswami.
