POEMS :

ULTRA PATRIOTISM

Militants, restive youth, armed robbers,

Kidnappers, and hired assassins

Hold sway in your country.

No! Good people. Great Nation

 

Billions of petro-dollars siphoned

by your corrupt leaders into Swiss accounts

Leaving you backwards and beggarly

No! Good people. Great Nation

 

In your country

Public utilities are comatose

And nothing really works

No! Good people. Great Nation

 

Definitely this man is hard of hearing

Or how else can one explicate

His nonchalant mien

to these stark realities?

 

 Is he pretending?

No! He is re-branding.
