Change

Then Obama..
Now Trump
Empty rhetoric
War mongering
Any change in attitude?

The Whigs and Tories in UK
The UPA and NDA in India
The Awami league and BNP
Similar governments
Corruption! Scandals
No change in political system

West colonialism
Aggressive imperialism
And now, neo-feudalism
Are engulfing poorer nations!
No change in oppressions!

But, peoples struggles changed …
The Paris commune
The Chicago Haymarket struggle
The October Russian revolution
The Chinese revolt
The Palestine struggle for liberation
Uprisings in Nepal, Philippines or Syria or Chhattisgarh in India ….
Old order has changed
Giving hope of new democracy!!
