Our Country

They invited you to do what they could not.
They summoned you to do what they would not.
They captured you, they enslaved you.
They needed you.

They brought you to build the nation.
They promised a home; it was supposedly set in stone.
You had a place but without a face.
They reaped the rewards with no mention of you or yours.

Then they said they want “their” country back.
And your place was gone without a trace.
