Father of the Nation















Measure him by what he left behind.

In order to save this village from the reds
it was necessary first
to burn the villagers in their beds.

Measure his stature in blood.

In order to level the playing field
it was necessary first
to level the entire city.

Measure his words in the dull thud
of distant guns.

In order to preserve democracy
it was necessary first
to stamp out all opposition.

Measure his deeds in skulls.

In order to save our nation
it was necessary first
to destroy our country.

Measure his greatness in graves.
