Patriotic - Poem by Konjit Berhane

I feel like
I don’t have
Any connection
Or any relation
With my nation

Got no satisfaction
Out of my memory collection
I might be mistaken
So give me my correction

Need patriotic feeling installation
When the war started
I was in session

But now…..
Now I am heading to expiration

    A common enough statement, which I would usually put down to apathy and lack of faith in anything that smells of establishment. However, I agree with Uriah on this.

    Great work.
