Railway Budget and the Communists

I don't give the Railway Budget a hoot,
I'm Mamata, all trains will run the Bengal route,
I've launched trains Duronto
Bottling plants and museums pronto
My goal, to give the Communists the boot.

Advice to women jogging in Delhi

In Delhi, should you contemplate an evening jog
You'll swiftly be chased by a street dog
Lusty louts will stalk you
Muggers will dispossess you
You'll wind up in a municipal ditch dead as a log.

The Union Budget

In the run-up to the Union Budget,
News Channels will kick up a racket
The fiscal deficit will balloon
And markets will swoon
Corporate sycophants will chant, "What a nugget!"

Perambulating policemen

City policemen loiter and perambulate
Chat languidly and relax in cars to pronate
They mock citizens with gibes
Grow potbellied with bribes
No wonder terrorists slaughter innocents and proliferate.

Valentine and moonshine

Come February, stores woo you like valentine,
Ambush you to boost their bottomline,
They hustle groundnut oil
Even pitch aluminum foil
Will they beguile you with their moonshine?

A toothless tiger or a goofball

When Udhav roars, the sainiks riot and brawl,
Assault North Indians and trash a cinema hall,
Is Udhav the heir apparent
Or Cousin Raj crown prince arrant,
Udhav's a toothless tiger, or is he Sena's goofball?

GM food and brains

Eat our brinjals and eggplants toxic,
Says Monsanto to Indians altogether sceptic
The bio science may be dodgy,
The research utterly murky,
Ingest GM soya, or you'll soon be brainsick.
