The Nation State

by Dgdag

The nation state is a magical world,
A stirring speech and a flag unfurled,
A sacred ground, an urgent dream,
A righteous cause and a love supreme.

The nation state is an Aztec priest,
A stab in the heart and a cannibal feast.
To a hero’s death our soldiers trod,
The nation state is a hungry god.
