With grateful thanks to Abu…

Abu sent me this. I thought it was most appropriate.

Pity the nation whose people are sheep

And whose shepherd misleads them.

Pity the nation whose leaders are liars

Whose sages are silenced

And whose bigots haunt the airwaves

Pity the nation that raises not its voice

Except to praise conquerers

And acclaim the bully as hero

And aims to rule the world by force and by torture

Pity the nation that knows no other language but its own

And no other culture but its own

Pity the nation whose breath is money

And sleeps the sleep of the too well fed

Pity the nation, oh pity the people

Who allow their rights to erode

And their freedoms to be washed away

My country tears of thee

Sweet land of liberty.

SOPPY SUNDAY
