When Fear becomes decision’s driving force,
And Reason finds itself usurped by Hate,
When opportunists plot a Nation’s course,
And Honesty declines in parlous state,
Will gods-in-counsel seek to intervene
Or let the scribes of history tell their tale,
Will Fate deliver suffering unforeseen
Or Kindness in the human breast prevail?
Great Goodness evil intent can transcend
Transforming Winter Winds to Summer Sun,
Let Trust return ill-judgements to amend
A haven to create for everyone;
Forget not blessings Future to ensure,
Forsake not well-honed values that endure!
