ODE TO OUR NATION.

When thousands of human lives are sacrificed daily

at the altar of stubborn obduracy,

I cannot reconcile myself

to the concern of those who choose
to weigh in the same balance
human lives against the crisis
facing the economy.

Has mankind become so very degraded,
stooped to such low abyssal depths,
that the economy which should work
for the good of humanity,
has today replaced mankind
in the eyes of the same humanity ?

Today, the impotent nation
simply stands and stares at
all the travesty and devastation carried out
in the name of truth, progress and justice,
and does not want to do anything
to stop this grave injustice.

armaity.
