The Little People

For every rupee that is spent on welfare schemes, only 15 paise reaches the common man, the rest, all pocketed.

Just quietly ignore us; keep on with what you do.
We are the little people—we shall not bother you.
Just keep stepping on us, pretending we’re not there.
We gave up trying long ago, we really do not care.

At first we thought we had a chance, but all too soon awoke;
And found that no one really cares and life is just a joke.
So just keep on denying that others live here too.
We are the little people—we shall not bother you.

 

Because when we wake up, you’ll have hell to pay!!
