A Limerick to a Newborn (Tyrant)

April 26, 2012

Note: I realise that limericks are only five lines long, but think of this as a super limerick – Five verses of five lines. I wanted to write this last week but circumstances were unfavourable (so to speak)

There once was a lady MB,
Who was as strongheaded as strongheaded could be,
And when she took power,
Oh man, was she sour,
And the law was now her’s to decree.

This strong-willed lady of Bengal,
Had once protested Government (the gall!)
She stood by the farmers,
Calling Government “You harmers!”,
She won people’s confidence (once and for all?)

While in Opposition she was vociferous,
Citing the Right to Dissent was obvious,
Now that she’s become minister,
Dissent… well, that’s pretty sinister,
She’ll throw you in jail, with a purpose.

Bullying academics is her hobby,
If she had her way, there’d be a whole lobby,
To stifle and malign,
“Just shut up and sign,
You’re going to jail, Mr. Bobby”

Speak to her, and say the word ‘free’
And she will try to convince thee,
Why have a democracy,
When you can have an autocracy,
The vile old lady, MB.

    You’re out of touch with writing. Good attempt, though. Write more.

    I really am out of touch… which is why I’m writing as frequently as time will let me.

    Incidentally, blogger informs me that your blog is age-restricted. Thought you should know. :)
