Civilizations In Transition

Read a few ancient words written
meaning to inspire souls to slay?

Who makes these decisions?
What is kept what is thrown away?

Civilizations in transition?
What perishes passes what ultimately stays?

by Terence George Craddock (Spectral Images and Images Of Light)

Dificult for Americans - a big nation - to appreciate the sentiments of someone who belongs to a small one - but they should try. Especially when the writer can teach what illusions are formed when we refer to a mighty but apocryphal past.
