Lesser of the two evils

With a creased forehead, crooked smile and a grim look on his face, Raghavan gingerly entered the room. He took a deep breath, closed his eyes and recollected what one of them had said.

With renewed hopes and yen

To grow together

Once we dethrone the charmer.”

“Neither candidates seem capable of ruling and governing the country”, he muttered under his breath and cast his vote gingerly for the lesser of the two evils.
