Wise Men Plant Trees
It seems there is a global phenomenon where rhetoric (pardon the pun) trumps substance and this is from all sides of the political spectrum. Common sense is passé and we have become a society with short attention spans, where self trumps thinking of others.
This is not the fault of our leaders, of our enemies, perceived or not, it is not the fault of big corporations or marketing campaigns, it’s the fault of every human, who of free will often chooses greed and complacency over compassion and giving.
This is not new, it’s a recurring theme in the history of man, and thus I refer you to a very wise quote;
A society grows great when old men plant trees whose shade they know they shall never sit in.
I dedicate this Blog to a friend who will soon become a very wise man, planting many trees!
To Bechir Harfouche!
Hi there, the blog has been running for almost a year, and as you can see I try to keep up a few posts a month. More about poetry and fellow poets, but also about current events, social issues as well as art and music. I look forward to any suggestions from readers and fellow poets!
