National Narcissism: A Satirical Poem
To love our country is plausible and fine
but some folks don't know where to stop
as if being intoxicated with patriotic wine
they insist on seeing their nation at a top.
You may be champion at boxing or skiing
and no one can deny it as factual and true
but for that you're not a better human being
as someone could run much faster than you.
Every nation boasting with their glorious past
forget that glory is dipped in someone's blood
with every shiny victory of their cannons blast
some ordinary human being ended up in mud.
Nation's future is measured by friends they make
while narcissist is shunned and ending up alone
and so much more than that is always at stake
national narcissism is policy rotten to its bone.
What deep weakness is it really concealing
not being happy with prosperity and wealth
why do nations need that peacock's feeling
what's there missing in that mentality health.
