and what remains in the rubble
is yet to emerge
treasure seekers maybe
here and there
clear the path to liberation
tell me a story of this new freedom
light the way for our children
it’s their memory to carry on
we must rebuild
something shiny something sustainable something wise
even if the fortune is hidden
take refuge in the knowledge
of your strong-willed foundation
