OUR COUNTRY

Attention committee
of adverse state of country
Endeavored to point out causes
Know that prosperity does exist.

Is it our duty to remedy evil?
Is there no remedy in reach?
Are we doomed to decay -

Held captive by a monster
So huge and deformed
With tremendous powers
That consume our passions?

Treated as an imposition -
A burden upon others
We must each take
One portion - voluntarily
For the common benefit of all.

We must employ, engage,
Supply, adopt our population.

Slaves of slaves
We must unite
with solemn conviction

Patriotism
Without Prejudice.
