In Times like These

We cannot cross until we carry each other,
all of us refugees, all of us prophets.
No more taking turns on history’s wheel,
trying to collect old debts no-one can pay.
The sea will not open that way.
…all of us must be chosen.
This time it’s all of us or none.

    We need to really try much harder if we want to be/come a long-lived global civilization.
