    My people, the downtrodden of the world
    With no easily visible reason
    To stand up now and hoist a flag unfurled
    This is most certainly not your season

    But pay this absolutely no true mind
    And march forward with conviction and zeal
    Through such valor you'll surely make and find
    All nature moving assisting your will

    As long as you are for the just and right
    And go on with morality raised high
    There is no way that you can lose the fight
    No matter if you live or if you die

    You are the one upon the side of Truth
    Victory is promised this side forsooth

    WOW ... this is beautiful ... this isn't just poetry ... this is prayer.
