The Poet: DEMOCRACY TO ME – Zarban

I was born inside darkness,
I grow inside darkness,
But they said, Government of the people.

I study inside poverty,
I walks inside poverty,
But they said, Government of the people.

I study day and night,
I graduate with flying colors,
But still am jobless.

I vote him with my finger,
He cheat me with his pen,
But they said, Government of the people.

I slept with mosquitoes and cockroach,
He slept with air-condition and diamond,
But they said, Government of the people.

People are dying because of hunger? joblessness among youths is increasing?
But they said, Government of the people.
