Independence..

In some land far off
but still near
a man would wake up tomorrow
blinking with concern & fear
How he would get his food
& would shudder.
as no work is no food for him
wouldn't the national anthem let him bewilder


Easy was to have independence
from men alien & stronger
tough is to fight within
to attain freedom from hunger.
