Let Them Eat Cake

By: Zulfiqar Ali Bhatti

[Let them Eat Cake is an Ode to an unjust ruler written by Zulfiqar Ali Bhatti, whose English poetry book ‘Unshed Tears’ has also been published.]

We had heard that great people think alike
And thank God to attest it we need not to hike
You, who is no doubt a ‘great’ man on the earth,
The wise; and rest all are in the dire dearth,
You remind us of French Marie Antoinette
Who called herself, princess the great,
And she out of spite showed anger over those
Who being hungry for a morsel of bread rose
And said if they couldn’t have any bread to eat
Let them eat cake and not bother and bleat
