On Sonia Gandhi Winning the Indian Election

I offer this poem

On a General Election by Hillaire Belloc (1870-1953)

The accursed power which stands on Privilege
(And goes with Women, and Champagne and Bridge)
Broke - and Democracy resumed her reign:
(Which goes with Bridge, and Women and Champagne).
