Tuticorin: the Vedanta Doctrine

Saturday 2 June 2018

First we give you bagfuls

To make government,

Then you commit not to meddle

With our profit-piling hunt.

 

But when people demonstrate

Against our killer-loot,

You promptly send the troopers

To take aim and shoot.

 

Thus it is that you and we—

Government and Corporate—

Define the nationalist feature

Of the proud and ideal State.

Government by, of, and for

The men with currency

Is thus the improved version

We provide of democracy.
