So wretched we are

So wretched we are

Where I live,

Is a devastating place.

So are its people!

Where I live,

Worthless are its fathers,

Who raise their sons-

Only to shoulder their coffins!

Where I live,

Hapless are its mothers,

Who sing lullaby-

For their dead children!

Where I live,

Is a wretched place.

So are its people!
