Rahul Gandhi poetry yojana

In my town, they build
the metro rail for a decade
or two, drainage pipes
half a kilometer long
for five years, maybe
six, flyovers that solve
all our traffic woes, in case
you haven’t noticed, and
in those years – two
prime ministers, three
chief ministers and four
councillors impressed
upon me a long list
of grand achievements
named after several Gandhis,
contributions so magnificent
I have come to believe
their spirits arrive
when I am fast asleep, to perform
herculean welding operations
on cold metal and hard steel, for
only that can explain
the speed at which we
are leaving Singapore behind.
