5.         THE NATION

What is a nation
more than an abstract reason
of a battle station
and a spilt love tradition
of a hierarchical creation.

Why should we feed the disparity
than originality
of mankind’s unity
and join in prosperity.

Leave Man alone
from the nation’s clone
to find its own way
during the creation day
than to have a normative say
which keeps the others at bay
and yourself astray.
