phoem for our nation


The republic is ours


There is no other choice. We must

Go on

Because to stop or withdraw

Would mean destruction


Should we sell our certainty

For meaningless slavery,

Or sit at a table

With last year's murderers

Who end each sentence

'As Your Majesty wishes'?


There is no other choice. We must

Go on.

We are the people with sad eyes, at the edge of the road

Waving at vans and crowded buses.

We are the tens of millions who live in misery

Beaten about by flood, volcano, curses and pestilence,

Who silently ask for freedom

But are ignored in a thousand slogans

And meaningless loud-speaker voices.


There is no other choice. We must

Go on.
