My poverty is my honour

2017-12-26
Oh how I hear you!
It is as abysmal as you say but I do believe that change is on its way. Well I have to...
We ebb and flow as societies and as empires do and yet I have faith in our young people. They are connected to the world in a way we were not...untruths are now easily exposed and hopefully the insouciance of our supposed betters will become intolerable to all.
I enjoyed reading this aware of my full stomach and thank you for stating the poor obvious.

Tryst
