Poetry – Culture

Culture

 

Culture is rich,

Surrounded with mystery,

A time capsule of history.

 

Culture is a prison,

Binding us in a straitjacket

The conservative’s racket.

 

Culture is art,

Security and order,

Stopping at the border.

 

Culture brings conflict

Intolerance and repression

Conflict and oppression.

 

Culture enriches,

Satisfies the mind,

Expresses the divine.

 

Culture prevents change,

Restricts development

Bolsters the arrogant.

 

Culture is binding

Brings people in harmony

Full of tales and hominy.

 

Culture is intolerant

Locks people in the tribal

Pushing Koran and Bible.

 

Culture is simple

It is also complex

Especially when concerning sex.
