One year of Naya Pakistan; done and dusted
The dollar has all hilted and the rupee has all guilted
Naya Pakistan has all done and dusted
Now breaking it a bit forward:
Done and dusted with all the claims of not letting any model town to ever happen again,
But would let the elite force men to dusk a joyous family;
To a bemoaning end in Sahiwal
Children to witness their parents being assassinated in front of them
Done and dusted with the claims of no subsidies on anything whatsoever
But sugar will have some; because we can’t displease our deep-pocketed Tareen sahib.
Done and dusted with accountability
Accountability for all
But oh, please keep a halt when you’d reach PTI’s gate
Done and dusted with the high words of all the former ruling parties
Who were the most corrupt of all time,
But what if my cabinet looks like a homogenised version of PML-N, PML-Q, PPP, APML
Done and dusted with the high claims of austerity and no protocol
But Busdar’s protocol will always go out of the reach and sight of our PM.
Done and dusted that the PM house is going to be transformed into a University
But our eyes got tired in the search of a speck of anything called as a university
Children with stunted growth
Who were being hollered about in all the hefty jalsas before
Are now on a lookout for their saviour but can’t see the one coming
Horse trading in senate election was haram
Only until the date, our own PTI did it
“Hum karein toh halal, par tum karo toh haram”
And in all this a year in down
Wish for the next four years to be a bit more progressive than just words!
