Tanking, a Poem

Nation Building is synonym for sacrifice
Rituals and Totems of the Nation State
The Flag, The Anthem, The Parliament
Are all vital
Academia is as well
Human Development indicators matter
A Tank is not one of them
No wonder we trail our neighbours
As progress is blinkered
And the Nation Is an imagined community
With people at its core
Which is often forgotten/foreign, conveniently
