Milords’ pie

ALL this had to happen
And we all know why
The Powers want their fingers
In Milords’ judicial pie

Till now it was about
Public posturing and bashing
But now they are thinking
Of direct gate-crashing

Collegium is an elite club
With criteria and conventions
Performance has been so-so
Barring few honourable mentions

The problem is with someone
Learned, compassionate and kind
With a liberal, secular approach
And an evidently independent mind

If such a rare judicial specimen
Slips through and occupies high seat
The complacent and the corrupt
Have to bear the brunt and face the heat

To ensure such mishaps don’t happen
The Powers want to keep an eye
This may be one of the reasons
They want their fingers in Milords’ pie!
