This is my Land. 2022 Edition

My land doesn’t read but that is not all its flaws.
My land has venom on its tongue
It spews only negativity
My land only appreciates the dead and lifeless.
My land is selfish, in bed with corruption.
My land is retrogressive, we never learnt from our oppression.
My land is beautiful, arrayed with precious gems
But like a beautiful lady with a bad attitude
My land is sick, my land is toxic, my land is cancerous
My land is cheap, need I say corrupt.
My land is weak, it takes the easy way out
My land is full of potential, the least said the better.
My land is a star but doesn’t shine lately
My land is rich yet so poor
My land is wise yet very ignorant
This is my land
