Their candidate

This happens everytime
Someone is appointed
Promoters are very happy
And detractors disappointed

The road to high benches
Is too foggy and unclear
Which values now count
And one should hold dear?

Aspirants used to imagine
Their mission had ended
Once their elevation was
By collegium recommended

But recent events showed
That none would be loath
Till the very final moment
Before one actually took oath

The media got to broadcast
A melodrama of hate and fate
We (the people) got entertained
While “they” got their candidate!
