A Fervent Expectation

1. Burma, Myanmar our golden land
Once peaceful, rich and grand
Whilst overpowered by colonial rule
Sadly, she became one of her tools.

2. Aung San, Bogyoke, with clear foresight
Made nationalities and tribes unite
Differences settled, problems left behind
'Panlong' treaty was finally signed.

3. Thus born a prosperous, sovereign country
For all the world to see and envy
Alas, our joy short lived and slashed
'DEMOCRACY' abolished, HOPES were dashed.

4. Her offspring now spread the world over
Yet, in our hearts, love forever
to the motherland, which gave us 'SIGHT'
Pray... one day SHE regains 'DEMOCRATIC RIGHTS'.
