So we are the last true Europeans in the sea of changes
and conflicting religions as old certainties disappear and
we bewildered, look at a world we don’t understand.
Israel is drowning in a demographic pool and their fight
to remain pure Jewish is doomed. Christianity is singing
its last hymn and churches in the future, if not razed to
the ground, will be places for tourists to marvel over.
Empires and countries always rise and fall like the tide.
Cultures too have their days before being discarded as quaint
but useless for a new time’s need. But we are not totally
doomed, the new society, perhaps not as insipid, skinned
as us, will hopefully adopt the ancient idea of democracy.
To predict the coming is impossible, but one thing will
forever remain true: Man’s hunger for freedom.
