... Child... Of a Dying Country...

by Peter Hunter

child of a dying country

once once the land was awash with pride

sometimes almost optimism

we had survived so much done so much

but fifty or sixty years later

negligent and complacent

suffering inadequates and incompetents

to rule this once-peasant land

we suffer oh how we suffer

once proud folk now have lost the will to live

watching, waiting for the next lie their next attempt to fool us

where where was that wrong turning

where did we go wrong?
