Change of clothes

My uncle was afraid of changing his clothes because the legitimacy of the new suit that he got tailored for himself had been questioned and under hearing at the apex court. He got sick of the whole thing and imposed emergency wearing his old suit. So now, there arent any opposing judges, the opposing politicians are either hiding, under house arrest or exported to Saudi Arabia. He's got nothing to fear now. He can now put on his new suit and put his old suit away forever, but he isnt. He's saying that he's waiting for the supreme court decision. OK, let me get this straight. First you blamed the emergency on prolonging of the hearing, saying how you wanted a quick decision. Now you want to prolong it yourself. Twisted! Chachoo diyan chalakiyan!
He's announced parliamentary elections. The opposition politicians, are where I already mentioned they are. Aunti gee for some reason has official protocol. She arrived in Lahore with police, fire brigade and ambulances in tow. His favorite people are in advertisements on the state owned TV. There's no other TV on air. When will anyone else campaign? Who's gonna win? It's anyone's guess. Oh, I remember now. Chachoo says, we are not ready for democracy yet. We're not mature enough to decide yet, so he'll just decide for us. Thanks Uncle, I cant imagine what it would be without you. I cant imagine it, because you just dont seem like going away, ever.
