My Country



                    My country                 April 28, 2013


History books, those government crooks they got the story wrong
Can I read about my countries dead, read something else instead?
Who was our leaders, I'd love a name, please tell me how they died
Can you tell me about my people, can you tell me when they cried?
Were there strangers in my country, if there was please tell me why?
I want to know about my heroes, every one, if I can't please tell me why
What happened to my people, other countries know
It's so different in my country, I really want to know
If I read about my leaders will my country feel ashamed?
If I learn about things that I should know, is this wrong, will I be blamed?
I'm confused about my country and the history of my land
Was my country taken from our history book, I've never heard of “Bobby sands”
History books, those government crooks they got the story wrong
Can I read about my countries dead, read something else instead?
