i understand why -

you love your
beaches - pristine
canyons - majestic
mountains dusted with snow

you praise your
freedom - granted
prosperity - enjoyed
sweat beaded on your brow

you adore your
people - united
culture - nurturing
future faintly, surely aglow

what and why
do i love:

a scattered archipelago
of teeming millions
half emaciated, wide-eyed;

a broken mountain chain
of steep eroding bald rock
stripped naked rendered infertile;

a reddened sea surrounding
vomiting rivers, sickened
guts of lax and Resistance-In-Pax;

because it is home,
my abstract attachment to it -
is strong;

because it is home,
my splendid dreams for it -
cannot be wrong;

because it is home,
my logical heart implodes -
it is where i belong.
