Shameful Father

....But father, if you cannot explain it then who will
I read about it in the textbook
But I am not filled with the emotions
You and my uncles display when you discuss it

....Tell me father,
Were you in prison?
Were you tortured?
Did you fight for grandfather’s land?
Were you in battle?

....Well, father
Did you, at lease, donate your money?
Did you donate your services?
Did you donate your moral support?

....All right, all right father
I see you do not want to discuss this matter further.
