Election in Bangladesh

Sporadic claps of gunfire and
sickening blasts from handmade bombs
have grown rather frequent in recent weeks,
as an election looms ahead,
where new faces for the house of gods shall be set,
though when or who shall supervise we do not know.

Since the supposed revival of our right to vote
more than twenty three years ago,
this terror has become a common scene
being staged for a few weeks at the end of each term
where the incumbents act for retention
while their challengers for the right of obtention.

I wonder, if the sweetness of power
grows even sweeter to those corrupt minds!
