The Campaign

The campaign had started early.

“I’ll put in rules to reduce pollution, encourage immediate arrests, no matter who breaks the rules. Our Earth deserves to live”, the candidate shouted, his voice far from feeble. The anti-pollution activists applauded, predicted him to win as he drank his supporters’ applause.

The headlines next day showed, “Candidate for the ministry post forced to eat his own words: arrested for honking continuously in a traffic jam without switching off the engine.”

Poetry & writing to me are to me, a breath of fresh air in a life that is sometimes covered by the smoke of sorrow or self doubt. They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.

  1. Excellent 77 Fiction!! :DDon't we see this happen everyday?? And the maximum number of defaulters are the people in authority itself.

  2. Tall promises are made by some candidates for personal gains only. Rarely do these kind live up to them. It is difficult but it is important for people to judge correctly. Nice 77 Fiction and kudos to the media who bring this into the open!! 🙂
