Marxist Theory of "Relativity"

Indian politics, it's said, is a cesspool, 
Communists say they're honest as a rule,
Will Marxist dialectic 
Turn voters apoplectic 
Will the polls' Red dynasties make us drool? 

After deriding dynastic rule for years, 
Have Communists decided to change gears,
Relatives of comrades,
Into elections now wade,
Will West Bengal polls end in tears?

I'd like to thank you all, 
To your health I'll drink on my wall, 
Here's a glass of wine
Vegetarian, so it's fine, 
Because of you, I've had such a ball.

Killer Veggies

With rat poison your vegetables are tainted, 
With DDT fruits are painted,  
Ingest a toxic cocktail   
That will make you wail, 
If you haven't read this,  you've probably fainted.

Maomata Goes Hi-tech

Mamata hired a Hot Male tech head
With smses the electorate will be fed, 
Will voters be confused 
By messages diffuse
And vote for the communists instead.

A Helicopter's Wedding

The 250 crore wedding of the political elite* 
Invited fat cats to a sumptuous retreat, 
Thirty thousand guests
Attended and blessed,
A helicopter for shopping down the street.

*Congress leader Kanwar Singh Tanwar's son married the daughter of another Congressman Sukhbir Singh Jaunapuria.

Budget Blues

On Budget Day the status quo prevailed, 
Abject media applauded and hailed,
FM tossed a few crumbs, 
To the meek and the numb, 
While the looters rejoiced and drank ale.
