The Realpolitik Rider

By Sanjeev Sethi

The Realpolitik Rider

Crimes the political class wreaks
by not executing
rigors of the roster
are more wretched
than exploits of yardbirds.
When lawbreakers turn
into lawmakers,
scofflaws grow into saints.
In such a setup,
it is advisable to eavesdrop
on the cries of the canaille.
Their snivels hold spasms
of hard-heartedness.
To heed is to salve.
