Face Of The Nation - Poem by Yiro Abari High

Face of the nation,
Hope of the nation,
Dressing generations

Face of the nation
Must find roots in truths,
Respect what is due
To humans and to brutes

The face of the nation
Must believe in substance,
Not fiction, not superstition
Not illusion

Face of the nation
Must believe that
Money buys a few things,
But esteem buys everything

The face of the nation
Must believe that
A pocket without discipline,
Will never conserve
And enough, it will never have

The face of the nation
Must be taught
The principle of nation-building,
Made to believe it
And disciplined to enforce it


Poet's Notes about The Poem

The face of the nation refers to the Police
