The fourth pillar of democracy has fallen alas,
Newspaper, media, all have turned out to be blind,
Neither is there freedom of the press,
Nor will you ever find.
An experiment called democracy,
Is now at its all-time decline,
Will my country survive,
Or will we all decline?
Watchdog for democracy,
Have turned out to be a pet dog,
The screen has turned out to be a blur,
As if there is a lot of fog.
