The Nude Colossus

The sentiments of old poems on old statues have been abandoned. Once, they filled patriots with rightful pride, but that pride is now only ego, and the meaning of the symbol is lost on nationalists who ignorantly boast of their allegiance for an idol they are unable to understand. The plain language, as esoteric as child’s textbook, could only ever be misinterpreted by a mind intent on twisting, by a mind intent on excusing itself of all wrong, by the graceless mind of cowardice.

Be decent and compassionate, beyond semantics, beyond policy, beyond law, beyond your self-serving, bullshit agenda.
