Wont' let today be a yesterday
first born to the land/nation
how could the land lay waste the

The squalor is hidden too often
the verbose of squalor was taught strange, once created do not clear
lay bare the burrow

deserve a treat.
Taken and schooled in shame foreign to
ingrained skin deep, delved and
shoveled almost into the genes
for some decades past
now hard to to live down the prepubescent
