A Sorry State

Patriots languish, incarcerated & behead
We had them buried in oblivion
“The labour of our heroes past
Shall never be in vain”

Alas,
Hunger had besiege our intestines
We travel at night
Only when we have oil
In our lantern

School have become a graveyard
Our libraries are but shadows
Peace is luxury
Chaos is comfort

Man has ceased to be a neighbour
Man is but the terror
And the patriots are theme
The enemies

Patriots languish
Politicians lavish
The former incarcerated
The latter celebrated

Who had the best laugh is known to none
But Providence!
