Shameless, Pointless....

They are here, the ordinary citizens "to serve",
To say that, with pious faces, they have the nerve,
Then to show us who's the boss,
They acquire a z-plus police posse,
And all 'service" goes for a toss, as I observe...

No terror investigations, have resulted in arrests,
The ones caught, then treated as State Prison Guests
Its almost like a spoof,
Ordering jackets bullet proof,
And the vendor is decided without meaningful tests.

Who cares about the injured? your "statement" is supreme,
In the glare of TV lights, you visit hospitals with the team,
A patient's path blocked; never mind,
Think of the visuals you leave behind,
In such times, your "concern" should be judged as extreme ...

Our representatives, give lectures and adjourn for the day,
To avoid embarrassing questions, in Parliament ,some say,
In the face of this legislative "shirk"
Lawyers,judges, all get back to work,
The work must continue, no blasts can come in their way...

It seems intelligence was received by police in July,
Why were those suspects not monitored since then, why ?
Then sudden progress in a single day,
Exponentially reducing out day by day,
Lots of talk, no arrests, and the common man can just die ?


  1. Just remove their security for a day. Let them realize what it is to move about with risk of life written at every step a common man takes.

  3. U K,

    I am unable to decide which of your three satires tops. Each is so wonderfully said. No Title and this one are in tough competition with Shameless close on heels.

    Take care


Some like prose and some like verse,
Enjoy these lines that we disburse,
We do the stuff in fun,
And should you not like one,
Please feel free, below, to curse ......
