In the western world we all know
how our pasts get washed away
by waves of peaceful technology,
so that how we was once amusing
and low tech, if not merely mechanical,
very quickly becomes false nostalgia
for future generations to feast upon.
Whilst millions across the world
lose much less and mourn a lot more
for being made to leave their country
of origin because the military hardware
which the rich supplies to strengthen weak
cleptocracies dictates their departure.
