As a history teacher I must say I love your post. The picture is classic and the words, beautiful. Well done!

Well done, SC. I was completely uninspired by this prompt. I'm afraid my work show it. Oh well, tomorrow's another day.

Nanka said...

I feel like yelling out Charge!! Onward!! and Forward!! :)
We were a colony of the British Empire till independence in 1947, so birth of a nation works well with me here!!
Remembered slogans from the History texts like "Freedom is our birthright", “Simon, go back", "Quit India", "Inquilab Zindabad!" (Long Live, Revolution!), "Do or Die" are some that come to mind, though Gandhi advocated "Ahimsa" or Non-Violence!!
Stimulating lines in your wonderful Haiku today!!
