IF YOUR NATION IS A SINKING BOAT
If your nation is a sinking boat,
Do not dismiss her as a failure,
Packing your bags and baggages,
Ditching her for another's glory.
Be within her fold and plan for a rescue,
Take upon yourself duties of chivalry.
Nurture her for a better berthing
In nation building.
Be her life jacket.
Else, you become a nonentity
In another man's land.
