Why this Hypocrisy??

I sin, I suffer,
You sin, you suffer,
Isn’t that how law works?
Aren’t we all the same?
But then why is one innocent,
Just cause of one’s fame.

Why do these sheep rally?
Why the outrage in air?
Did you not break a law?
Did you not cross the line?
So why they cry unfair?
When law slaps you a fine.

They cite your philanthropy,
They pray you be let free,
They jump in to defend,
Using your kids as shield,
But for them who died that day,
Did hearts their ever bleed?

So why this hypocrisy?
By those who cry for change,
If one of brother falls,
Why ‘country first’ is asleep,
And many died that day,
For whom none of you weep.

  1. Quite thoughtful and very aptly penned.
    The way you have placed it in simple words, calls for curtains to fall on this debate. Actually, there is no debate as such.
    The judiciary has done it's job and I'm really proud of it. I am okay if someone says that he is a nice man, helpful and good at heart. All that is okay. But that is not a justification of asking him to be exempt from punishment. That is unfair. If a common man gets rigorous punishment for being a anisocial-affiliate, why spare celebs. For no solid reason as a valid point of debate.
    It was a sin and he got punished. Justice done.

    Keep writing.
