Civilization

Midst Egypt, the desert land, flew ‘Red River’ Nile, He irrigated her; made her ever fertile; Common humans, like birds and flies, lived with no guile, Weren't, even then, Cain-Able-like enmity rile...? Wars, in primitive form, did minds and hearts defile, The dead, within Pyramids, did live long awhile; Modes modern; morals much mean; faces full of smile, Land and wealth and power had been human profile; Civilization did pass through many a mile, Though looks dead, will she become forever worthwhile...? 02 October 2022
