My flag, my heart

Still blue, the indomitable
Boycotted and Booed
Bashed and buried
But still blue
Boughs broken but barren not yet
Bruised bosoms but still bears some milk
Ready to breastfeed its betrayers

Still blue, the indomitable
Its blue sea fed to the brim
From broken bottles to barrels of uranium
But still blue
Its borders bombarded
Its base set on blaze
With benzene borrowed from in and out

Still blue, the indomitable 
Never bow to all these blows
Bound you are to be one of the best
Remain blue it’s just a blink
Before you blossom AGAIN
