    here's a short poem i wrote some time back on the lokpal bill... i always read it with a kind of a rap flow :p

    The Bill

    We had independance,
    some 60 years gone,
    the country in a mess,
    not one bit on a song.

    A guy, old-school,
    decided to take a stand,
    "Lets take corruption down,
    I have a plan"

    So he decided to shun food,
    he went on a fast,
    gathered up people,
    took the government to task.

    "I hav a proposal,
    no I don't intend to marry,
    sit down n listen to it,
    and u won't be sorry"

    The government said, "Dude!
    We can't pass this,
    if this bill be passed,
    how would we make business?"

    The old guy said,"Bro,
    lets debate this,
    me n u, one on one,
    with the people as witnesses."

    So they argued over the plan,
    just like married couples do,
    Do u love me? You hate me!
    I hate you too.

    And like most married couples,
    they didn't divorce,
    but they wouldn't agree too,
    on what path to course.

    When the change will happen,
    no one can say,
    but whatever bill be passed,
    the common man will pay.

    As soon as you mentioned rap I began rapping this out loud=]
    I loved this poem.
    Especially the ending
    When the change will happen,
    no one can say,
    but whatever bill be passed,
    the common man will pay.

    So chilling and so true
