A nation doomed


As I entered this room,

All I smelt was doom,

A room so darkened with gloom

In a nation doomed.

 

The birds sing no more,

The wind blows no more,

The sun shines no more,

In a nation doomed.

 

The children have gone silent,

Mothers and fathers meet not,

My heart cries out,

In a nation doomed.

 

All I hear are gunshots,

My eyes are bursting to brim,

Because of the smoke-filled sky,

Mine is a nation doomed.
