Voodoo Planning

Earn less than rupees twenty eight,
You're poor, states a policy potentate
If you earn twenty nine,
Order Burgundy wine
Says the wizard in economics debates.

Cotton exports would face a ban,
Announced the government with elan,
Then the ban was revoked,
In one swift stroke,
Are U-turns a new game plan?

Red and Blue

Paint Kolkata blue, Mamata said, 
Residents' hearts were filled with dread,
They revolted and complained
She hollered with disdain
"Because the Communists painted the town red."
