You can’t see
rainbows
without light’s
refraction.
Splitting into
separate bands.

Divide and conquer,
Social media creating
virtual community,
real life isolation,
hashtag, ampersand …

Texts and email,
atrophy face to face
communication.

The lost ancient art
of pow-wow
replaced by pointless
sanctions,
international isolation.

Producing worldwide
suffering of refugees
alluvial.

United Nations
lip service spilling out
effluvial.

Light,
shined obliquely
casts shadows
on self-aggrandizement.

National self-delusion.
policies of exclusion,
global disenfranchisement.
