No Country for hatred

 

i was asking myself a question,
while washing my hands
in the red river!
is this your country?
is this for what you
called it a country?

suddenly

a white crane appeared
on the other side of the river
and asked me 10 questions,
i have to answer Yes/No.
if i am No to one,
i lose and an exile!
if i win, i am the citizen
of a country called hatred!

You support war?
You support death penalty?
You support political killing?
Is your belief superior?
need more money?
are you smarter?
like weapons?
you hate?
abusive?
cheat?



uff!
I saved myself?
