The Onus is On Us……

The Onus is On Us……

And so here we are after few days of elections result day,
And presently thinking how our future will sway.
Democracy demanded that we give them a chance,
But this time I think we should join in the dance.

Coz whoever they are, the men at the helm,
The country still belongs to us, not to them.
We gave 336 seats for NDA to form the government too,
We voted them to power between me and you.

But whether they prove to be wise men or fools,
This nation is ours so let’s play by the rules.
Let’s not break the law, can we please stand in line,
Let’s not pull those strings to avoid paying a fine.

Let’s finally get that a red light means stop,
Let’s not stoop to bribing the poor traffic cop.
Let’s be part of the reason our country is great,
Let’s be good citizens before it’s too late.

Let’s serve our great country without hesitation,
Let’s all work together to build a strong nation.
Enough of the trolling, the barbs and the fights,
Now let’s stick together, stand up for our rights.

Enough of debates on religion and caste,
Now let’s be united, secular at last .
They might have the seats, altogether 336 they do,
But the country belongs to me and to you.
And we’re a billion people, a billion and plus,
At the end of the day, the Onus is on us…

It is our job to Save India – though this poem is dedicated to Indians
after the results of the elections, the patriotic feeling should hold
good for all others as well!
