Its Myanmar

How you identify, 
Will always override, 
All rational thinking,
Causing a divide. 
Read between the lines 
As the countries multiply. 
Clever with their words 
So they call it “colonize”.  

Want to know a true coward?
Watch how he handles power.   
Aimed to devour. 
Leaving the people sour. 

And bitter. 

If only they had twitter.
Exposing the foes.  
These greedy transmitters.  

I went there. 

And I think they went way too far.
Took it, 
and left them with a permanent scar.
Have to claim it back to remember who you are. 
Burma is not their name. No.
It's Myanmar.
