Western Manifesto

We live each in a private eternity,
an idea of permanence is where we dwell,
our present takes hold of our futurity;
our temporality is unshakable.
 
From day to day we drift in a closed sphere
of knowing where everything is or might
be; our foundations are most secure,
our buildings rise to an impressive height.
 
We hear of volcanic eruptions and
earthquakes, and judge our own immunity
selected for; while we extend a hand
to the hit overseas community.
 
Our patent role in humanity builds
conviction in us of a special people,
untouched by the embarrassment of perils;
whose safeguard science resolves every evil.
