She’s been called a ‘self-condemned liar’.
Changing stance pat,
At the drop of a hat,
Zaheera Shaikh has provoked the SC's ire.

The witness had turned hostile,
“She has perjured”

Zaheera has said she needs time,
To figure out what was her crime.
“I had to veer,
Out of sheer fear,
I am innocent dear sirs, really I’m!”
