The Aged Aged Man

Poem By Lewis Carroll

World leaders call out
'Globalization'...
The world is growing smaller...

Meanwhile...
Life traditions and fear
cause nations
to wall off.

Borders tighten...
travel is blocked
And it seems...
As the world is reversing...

Distances affect neighbors
trust nearly gone
The separation seems
vast not closer...
