Irony!!!





IRONY

The leader
Leads us
To March ahead,
Inspire us
To fight the bad,
But never conspires
To leave behind
All and sundry
And march ahead alone.
The pleader
Pleads the case
Truthfully and sincerely
To punish the guilty,
Not to jail
And punish the innocent.
The engineer
Devotes his life
Fulfilling needs
Of people
Building up
The society
Minarets of comfort
And luxury,
Does wonders
On the wonderful land
Works constructively
For construction
Never for destruction.
The doctor
Maintains
The body of society
Repairs the despair
Nurses the nursery
Of living stock,
Never causes injury.
Ironic is
The state of people
Who are still down to earth,
More ironic is,
The treatment of
Anaemia
With just, anaesthesia?
