 "The Spirit of Sacrifice"
In these unpleasant and ignorant days
don't ask us for happiness,for tolerance or bliss
or the condoning of decadent ways
Ask us for the fire that is in our hearts
For that burning word that needs to be sown,
that will set the mind of our people aflame
Ask us for an annihilating hour of ecstacy
Don't ask us to soothen what wounds you may have
but ask us to weed out what shouldn't be there
but for too long have been.
Ask us to take back what is ours by right
That iron laurel of our broken will
may be repossessed by liberating deeds
