The Minority Government

a poem by rm shanmugam chettiar, India



The wise are in minority.
The rulers are in minority
Rogues too are in minority.
So are captains and militants.

Teachers are in minority.
Bishops are in minority.
Juries too are minority.
So are smugglers and the rich.

Americans are in minority.
Human beings are in minority.
Minority rules the majority.
Minority rides the majority.

Majority yields to minority.
Majority fears the minority,
And loves to play the role of drudgery.
The sign of majority is slavery
