Politicians drop your security cover

Another blast
Few killed, many injured, all innocent
News put 17 nos as killed bodies count 
Who knows how living death hovers when bread winner is lost ?

Politicians are genesis of surge in terror
they are safe, with commandos and bullet proof cars
Common man is King maker on paper
Except right to defeat in elections, is he not helpless pauper ?

Politicians do us a favour
if you can't abort every attack of terror
At least, drop your fancy security cover
Who nows, given access, terrorist may opt for politicians, leaving civilian out of fear ?  

On backdrop of recent serial Bomb Blasts in Mumbai

    is it a problem of economics or of religion. is religion getting even with economics? have they oppressed the poor thgat much? how many people have they starved into submission to Allah? and told the media that God is the blame? beware, God is not mocked!

    You said it, Hitendra. We need to put the politicians who declare war on the front lines leading the troops. Love that last line. It would be quite a different world if the terrorists had a choice between politicians and civilians. And you're also correct that each life lost actually impacts many lives -- breadwinners' families and even their friends. Thanks for you kind comment. Love, Carolyn

    Interesting view you have given. You must remember that the politicians are just common people given grandiose titles. They come from the common til.
