G-L-O-R-I-A's  Recovery

After months of rehabilitation
after months of learning how to use

her artificial limbs
Gloria was better off

than her nation
which had trouble

recovering from
its wounds

Gloria accepted
her new life

while the nation
stumbled and fell

got up
as if it was drunk

and still didn't know
how to wield its power

all Gloria knew
was that she had done her part
