- Title: THE SORRY NATION
- Description: India has been a nation of patriots and martyrs. But, I am sorry to say that the whole nation is now ashamed of traitors who are blemishing the heroism of our patriots who died for the sake of national pride, glory and freedom. The poem is remarkable in the sense that it hoots the traitors whose heart it seeks to change and fills it with a spirit of patriotism.
THE SORRY NATION
An antique land--
Over-heaped with imported novelties
Overburdened with ambuscading zombies-
Is now a slipslop nation
Ever yowling in pain
Seldom smiling in vain
Never creeping in philanthropic drain.
The antiquated yodel--
That we master the spiritual mathematics
That we excel social ethics
That we gild cosmic human graphics--
Goes unsonorous and unheard
Within and beyond the world.
The trite madrigal--
That once we sat in the heart's throne
That our vision enlivened dead bone
That we harmonized the mondial tone--
Has sunk into ludicrosity
And gone beyond curiosity.
