Motherland

   
   
There are those  
who remain loyal
to the Motherland.    
Heirs of tradition,  
a jaw's carved bone  
and twisted curvature,    
a Wisdom tooth curled  
hard around a Truth    
decaying in the gums    
of a modern world.    
Those who remain    
sow ancient furrows of  
duty, honor, and respect  
before dying toothless  
themselves.  
~
