THE CRIPPLED GIANT

The Crippled Giant http://www.facebook.com/WRRPoetry [The Crippled Giant] A nation of great wealth
Dominated by the poor

A nation sired by and betrothed to water
Dying of thirst

The food basket of aliens
Hungry are its citizens

Amongst her kinsmen
She claims to be the greatest

Piloted by the blind
Ruled by the weak-hearted
Guarded by the coward
What a crippled giant!

    Words that could strike a chord
    Straight through the hearts of the strong
    An art of war with neither gun nor sword
    But leaves one pondering what’s gone wrong

    Alas!
    No-one wants it said
    In times when what we hear is lies
    Say the truth,your life is paid
    Where lay this saviour to hear our cries

    To teach us so that we may learn
    The words to heal these souls and mend
    That we may yet become brave not cowards
    And even in stands of men in ten’s
    We shall march with heads held forward
