Alas! Our Country Is Doomed To Hell! - Poem by Vinayak Damodar Savarkar

Alas! Our Country is doomed to hell,
The Freedom Mansion is up in flames!
Fie! Helplessly you gaped,
When came a Horde of Foreigners
And plundered your Land!
Smashed through your defences, they did-
Come! Attack like a swarm of locusts, of them be rid!
Fie! Riches of Freedom they have looted away-
Yet unmoving like the dead you stay!
