Newspaper headline in a “Democracy”:
PARLIAMENT VERSUS THE PEOPLE
Have you noticed how world-wide
A versus B situations are becoming
more and more confrontational?
Stoking up the fires of hatred and dissatisfaction
in more and more areas of human activity.
Sport, politics, arms sales.
National and international.
Racial and domestic.
Marriages, families, medication, religions.
Even sexual identity.
Just like a heating compost heap,
getting ready to burst into flames
and unify its contents
into next year’s fertiliser
as we sleep.
Are we getting any the wiser?
