Cultural Clashes

We are told to “celebrate diversity”!  What nonsense that is.
We are told we live in a multicultural society.  Again that is nonsense. Multiculturalism can, at most be, a passing phase as cultures blend or clash as the case may happen.
Kipling wrote that: “East is east and west is west and n’ere the twain shall meet”.  That is not strictly true some east and west cultures can blend over time, some cannot.

 

Deformed not natural

Some cultures grow that are quite ill at ease
And cannot face the facts where they cause woe.
Where they can they will do just as they please,
They’re greater risk to allies than to foe.
Up front’s a friendly face as false as lies.
Insides a twisted soul that frights itself.
Complaining all the time aloud each cries.
While seeking all the time for some new pelf,
Old long past wrongs they use to justify
An ally whom they poison for his purse.
At other’s grief they’re never known to sigh
But just moan that they have themselves fared worse.
These folk deformed and twisted up with hate
Could cast a shadow dark upon our fate!

 

Cultural Clashes

Where cultures clash then only one may win.
For multiples of cultures lead to strife
And all but one are labelled as true sin
And worthy of the need for taking life.
The rational where feuders rationalise
Is that their cause is just and true and right.
Those not quite of their ilk they may despise
And treat them to the dark side and to spite.
And when at last one cause may seem supreme,
Hegemony obtains its stable rule.
But strength may fall and fade just like some dream,
All through the misrule of a single fool.
As strength returns to those who were once weak,
To those who were once strong all now turns bleak.
