Celebrate Civilisation

Celebrate Civilization
by Remigius de Souza

Humans – the first born, our forbear –
Were gifted with art and culture
By the life-giving land and water

That was long, long aeons before
The humans invented ‘civilization’
By the dark power of their mind

To divide and rule the fellow humans
And the life-giving land and water:
The same triumph becomes now our noose.


Remigius de Souza
