Recalling your stem of origins
Your cultivators wanted to see you grow

A country with viable seeds,
Lacking growth because of thorning weeds,
You could have been more delightful than autumn springs,
But your gardeners failed to irrigate your potent gametes,

Recalling your stem of origins,
Your cultivators wanted to see you grow,
And though they fought for the emergence of your landmark,
Your flourresent light became dime as the navigation button powered on,

How have the mighty fallen,
Where did it go wrong,
I asked bemused,
An echo of hard times has seized your steering wheel,

Hunger plagues your people,
The future is perceived as nightmare,
And though the search for hope lingers on,
Our enthusiasm dwindles because hope staggers on mountainous edges
