1. Pond

As a boy asked of his father,  

“Dad, who made this land?”,

a democrat made a cross of silver  

in the palm of his own hand.

 

 

As a girl begged in tormented cries  

for a grain of rice and a sip of water,  

a lover cut losses and severed all ties  

as he turned his back on an unborn daughter.

 

 

As he turned his back on an unborn daughter,

a lover cut losses and severed all ties  

for a bowl of rice, a glass of water.  

Another girl begged in tormented cries

 

 

In the stained palm of a selfish hand

a democrat carved a cross of silver.

“Daddy, who did make this land?”,

asked an innocent boy of his omniscient father.
