A Good Government

A good government
Always works like a good parent;
Quietly, sincerely,
Honestly, unobtrusively,
Without making too much fuss.

Like a protective, benevolent spirit,
It hovers around the citizens,
Well aware of their needs and expectations,
Manifesting its love and care
In nice little things happening around them.

A good Government nicely defined in a thoughtful poem.
bahh, very good positive write.
As citizens of this free country, we all are entitled to that 'protective, benevolent spirit' and the government is duty-bound to take care of their needs and expectations with love and care. An elected govt cannot and should not have a partisan view drafting their welfare schemes. Thanks for sharing the poem, Jasbir ji.
