POLITICS OF BAD O'MENS!

VAKTANTRA: WEAVING VOICES OF INDIA TO RING THE BELLS OF LIBERTY TOGETHER!

RING THE BELL OF LIBERTY!
Ringing Liberty Bell
BY TALKING OF REALITY!

BAD OMEN POLITICS OF BAD O'MEN!
THE pre-RIGGED VEDA!
Ring-a-RIG-a Roses
Pocket full of PosIes
Hush up!  Push UP!
ALL FELL DOWN.
RING-A-rig-A-ROSES!
It is a terrible thing
to be a peerless seeress
without sounding like a chronic-ocular
Brahma's AHAM!  THROAT-CLEARING!
But go back a little behind
And re-read the arse-y farse-y
fact of fatuity,  foretold!
THE RUMP HAS LEFT THE BOGIE!
AND VAJPAYEE HAS BEEN FORCED
OFF THE FEVICOLed KURSI
with the rug pulled off
from under his feet
Planted firmly in front of the ENGINE
THAT DRIVES THE train forward
but now BOGUS-VOTING is
BOOGIE-WOOGIEing
back into Hotel ViceRoy!
Which is in it's name and "spirit"
as a freebie parking space or sold for a bargain
an anachrony in both time and place.
What plot was hatched in Hotel ViceRoy
in April-May last
Must needs but end up
in chickening out at the same spot
Last Outpost of ViceReignity!
This was where the twin mascot of purushottamahas was floated
and Vajpayee on return on Europe found so wanting
that he threw in the towel and said he was going off to SHAM-SHED
BUT THAT WAS SUCH BAD TIMING!
HE SHOULD HAVE IT DOWN NOW
WHEN ALL IS HIS FOR THE ASKING!
When the rump started leaving
the ELEPHANT HERD
ON A MUSTHI DANCE
IN THE ELECTORAL JUNGLE BOOK!
Beginning with Karunanidhi'S DMK
TO BE FOLLOWED SUIT BY MDMK AND THEN PMK
And was secretly on a one-to-one
threatened by Lance Naik subedar jagirdari
Of an Andhra subarea command suzerainty
working under world bank clerk diktat totality
It was all a matter of finality
Of a pre-makara-sankranti fatatily
wrapped in an exercise in unpuzzling futility
to be fogged over or fobed off
with a forced play of smile and sally
forth of a song of a saga-soaked soap opera
playing up the singature tune signing off as an:
INDIA SHINING.
When it was no such thing.
But an arse-y farse-y reality
From the very beginning!
When the rump leaves
Can the kursi be still hung on to?
clinging to a hardware store?
Marketing a magic bonding agent called:
FEVICOL?
So the government would have to fall
Anyway with the regular budget
What with one after the other of the rump leaving
The train has been derailed
by the elephants dancing on the rails!
and the bogies have bogus bodies!
left holding the squallid bogus voters-list!
A quarter ahead of it's time
It must come to an end because
'All over the country people want to give
THE LOST VICEROY AHOY!  VAJPAYEE
some more time to work his moneymore-mantra'
that they had to pull him out a quarter early?
come tell us another pancatantra story
of a monkey who ate up all the chappati
that the tomcats dragged in search of an equity
of justiciable distribution!
So
That is the paradox of party politics!
That for time to be given
Time must be taken!
As if time were a pole-vaultable vote-bank!
'It is not to ring the bell backward
[as T S ELIOT SAID IN FOUR QUARTETS]
Nor is it an incantation
To summon the specture of a Rose.'
[especially when a bouquet of Roses
Ring-a-RIG-a ROSES
'had not the look of flowers looked at'
much less
'a rose by any other name would have smelt the same'
when the commingling conclave had no time to spare
to smell or to look at flowers
much less the flowering of freedom in a democratic bedrock]
So Shakespearean or Eliotian roses or not
RING-A-'''''''''''''''RIG'''''''''-A-ROSES
WERE ONLY HEADED ONE WAY:
AND THAT WAS DOWN DOWN  DOWN
HUSH UP!  PUSH UP!
ALL FALL DOWN!
BECAUSE THE BUM HAS LEFT THE BOGIE
AND LEFT THE COALITION RUMPLESS!
but as Eliot said:
in FOUR QUARTETS:
'We cannot revive old factions
 We cannot restore old policies
Or follow an antique drum
These men,  and those who opposed them
And those whom they opposed
Accept the CONSTITUTION OF SILENCE
And are folded in a single party.'
So while we have a prime minister
who finds fault with what
a constitutional authority said
about politicians being what they are
he has not once wondered in public
Nor WAS heard to have muttered in private
[as heard by hearsay of what's said in the servants quarters:
because as LYNGDOH ONCE MOST FAMOUSLY SAID:
"IT IS:  THE GOSSIP OF THE MENIALS"
which is later put into mode DENIAL!]
about how all these bogus voters are making up
BUT SHOULD NOT BE
NOR ALLOWED TO BE
MAKING UP
an ENTIRE ARTIFICIAL NATION!
AND WHAT'S WORSE
OR MAKING THE NOSES CURL UP IN DISMAY
AND LEFT RUNNING IN ALLERGIC POLL-en fallen dismay
and still left
COMING OUT SMELLING LIKE ROSES!
ALL THE SAME AS is being SOLD to
and sold out to the public at large
IN THE ENTIRE BOUGHT-UP
PARIVAR-PRAVDA PRESS OF INDIA!
'I sometimes wonder if that is what Krishna meant--
[QUOTH T S ELIOT IN FOUR QUARTETS]
Among other things--  or one way of putting the same thing:
That the future is a faded song,  a Royal Rose or a lavender spray
Of wistful regret for those who are not yet here to regret,
Pressed between yellow leaves of a book that has never been opened.
And the way up is th way down, the way forward is the  way back,
You cannot face it steadily,  but this thing is sure,
That time is no healer:  the patient is no longer here.'
For the subcontinent will continue to simmer
And will they or us press the nuclear button?
Instead of the EVM?
If the prime minister promises one thing there
and does a volte face back here?

And was that what Lyngdoh meant when he said:
"Cancer has eaten up the Body Politic."
But time is being pushed hither and thither
To suit this rump here or that lumpen there
Instead of being a steady flow
Forward from the past into the Future.
'Go go go,  said the bird,  human kind
Cannot bear much reality.'
[T S ELIOT IN FOUR QUARTETS]
So all this whole country will say is
LYNGDOH GO GO GO AND SAY NO MORE!
It doesn't matter one way or the other:
"FOR THE PATIENT IS NO LONGER HERE!"
'So Krishna,  as when he admonished Arjuna
On the field of battle.
                           Not fare well,
But fare forward,  voyagers.'
[AS SAID BY T S ELIOT IN FOUR QUARTETS]

For troubled times are surely brewing and simmering ahead!
And we haven't a sober thought in our heads
Because here's the Ego going all gung-ho
as in:
ANDREW LANG'S BRAHMA:
"I am batsman and the bat,
I am the bowler and the ball,
The umpire,  the pavilion cat,
The roller,  pitch,  and stumps and all."

And the only way these silly egos spice up their
boring [in both senses of the word!  boring as in bored out of wits and boring as in crabbing and grabbing into the bowels of the being] lives is
by messing up and around with everyone else's time
mucking in the 'eternal dirt of vigilance'
 which is the alter ego of FREEDOM!
THIRD WORLDISM IS NOTHING BUT THIS:
LACK OF RESPECT FOR TIME,  TIME-KEEPING AND TIMING!
THIS SLIPSHODDY DESCANTING INTO
AHAM! BRAHMA BRAIN-TRAP EGOTRIPPING
OF TRIPARTISM OF A FUSED
ID,  EGO, AND SUPEREGO
GOING OH! SO GUNG-HO !
as in:
ANDREW LANG'S BRAHMA:
"I am batsman and the bat,
I am the bowler and the ball,
The umpire,  the pavilion cat,
The roller,  pitch,  and stumps and all."
SICKNESS OF THE PSYCHE
SUCH AS THIS
NEEDS NOTHING SHORT OF
FRONTAL LOBOTOMY!
BUT THEN THE POLITICS OF BAD O'MEN
IS A TRIUMPHALISTIC ONE-MAN-SHIP
OF LEAVING THE SHIP MID-STREAM
OR IN THREATENING TO DROWN IT MIDSTREAM
BY LEAVING IT STUMPED AND DUMPED RUMPLESS!
BECAUSE THIS IS A PLAY OF THE SUPER-PSYCHE GAIN GAME
THAT GOES LIKE THIS:
IF I MUST DO THIS
by the law or constitution
then I will see how much
I can bend it to suit my own rump
of 'what I would like to do'
and all the time eating up time
to play the super-psycho gain game of:
"HOW MUCH I CAN GET AWAY WITH!"
WHICH IS WHAT POLITICS IS ALL ABOUT!
SO BORING!  FOR THE REAL HUMAN BEING!
 IF ALL THEY CAN THINK OF IS:
HOW TO BUM OFF AND KEEP BUMMING OFF
THE SARKARI SHOUKARI TIJORI!
WHICH,  THOUGH, IS NOT WHY
ASOKA THE GREAT
LEFT HIS RICH LEGACY OF ART
"BEHIND!!!!!!!!!!!!"
[NO PUN INTENDED THERE!]
BY LEAVING HIS SARNATH LIONS
ROARING FORWARD ON THE CAPITAL
BUT ABSOLUTELY LEFT RUMPLESS!
ALTHOUGH ONE WONDERS IF HE HAD HAD AN INKLING
OF HOW HIS REPUBLICAN DESCENDENTS
WOULD DESCANT OR SINK TO THIS!
IN THE 21ST CENTURY?
SO HERE IS WHY,
I,  PASSERBY
SAY GOODBYE.
OR SHOULD I?
TOO?
SHILLY SHALLY LIKE
OUR NETA LOGON KA LOTTO
ARE SO RELUCTANT TO DO
STAY AND FINISH THE COURSE
THAT IS DOWN TO THE LAST QUARTER
[IN SEARCH OF FUTURE QUARTERS!
TO BE ETERNAL SARKARI SQUATTERS?]
STAY AND FINISH THE COURSE,  SHALL I,  PASSERBY?
PUT OUT ON SHOW
WHAT'S TO HAVE GONE ON SHOW:
BUT IS STILL MISSING
ON THE BOGUS BEINGS VOTERS RIGHTS ISSUES
BY GOING GOING GONE!  GONG!

UP FOR GRABS!
BY
THE INDIAN CRABS?
