Smooth Gliders and Politicians

Blogger friend Magiceye, posted this in his latest post related to Camera Critters.

A photo capture of a smooth glide in the water , from the Mahim Nature Park in Mumbai.

It is so relevant that this Nature Park is situated in the most densely populated area of Mumbai, close to what is often called Asia's biggest slum. It is also relevant that vast human populations sometimes become potential vote banks.

Which actually reminded me of snakes of another type .......

Some dig in,
remaining upright,
despite the flow;

practical types,
pick and choose
where to fall,
where to flow,
with friends,
smartly inert;

And some,
with chequered lives,
and a longish reach,
glide smoothly
through it all,
sinusoidal moves,
a push here,
a drag there,
a tail lash
at obstacles,
but with
a face above
at all times.

We call them politicians.
