Why Voting

In a country were army generals

Believe the bullet is mightier than the ballot

In a country were they swear

The country will not be sold by ink

In such a country

 

I wonder,

Why do people vote

In a country were the winners are decided,

Not by the franchise,

But by those who announce…

The electoral results

Are we masters of our own destiny,

Why do we vote….

In a country,were it is not worth voting,

In a country were the ink,is not worth the victory….

Why do we still go to the polling booth?

In a country were elections are mere rituals…

Why do we still vote…
