The first time we heard the term democracy ,
Politicians were fighting for votes, not the people.
The first time we read democracy ,
It was in a political science textbook .
Defined using vague words and explained using bookish language  ,
Just meant to cram and vomit in an exam .

And the first time we tried to understand democracy by asking questions ,
We were anti-nationals ,
Smearing the name of the world’s largest democracy.

Because a democracy is as defined in the books,
As told by the leaders,
And as allowed by the politicians .

No questions asked in a sovereign socialist Republic.
