The Masses Support Modi (Not)


Modi, we still love you
while you destroy our lives.
We stand in the bank lines for hours
or else we send our wives.

People have no cash
to buy a little food
but to criticize you, Modi,
would be unpatriotic and rude.

You will soak the rich.
You will help the poor.
You’re our Hindutva hero
who’ll even up the score.

You promised you’ll give us ladoos
and nice cash gifts as well.
You promised us Digital Heaven
to replace black-money hell.

So even if we starve
and lose our miserable jobs
we still worship you, Modi,
and we’re no ignorant slobs.

And even if we go hungry
we’ll rise before the film starts
to sing the national anthem
because you are so dear to our hearts.

You destroyed the economy
with one colossal blunder.
You’ve brought untold misery
and torn our lives asunder.

But Modi-ji, whatever you do
or say or think is fine.
There’s just one more little thing
you ought to do. RESIGN.
