Title: Ship of State
Dimensions: 12 1/2" x 17 1/2"
Inscription: "This ship of state sails on and on,
to some unknown place,
using anything for sail,
as though in some mad race,
burning every resource,
to fuel the furious pace,
the children hide their fear,
and try to play,
the aged brace themselves on deck,
against the sway,
is this ship of state or state of nation,
with poverty and wasted life our destination,
while the third world wind grows stronger,
the frail ship gets weak, our journey longer."
