Ode to ARPA

kindness is not weakness

bravery comes to whom God, gospel and justice approve

drawing on resources brings rivalry

making a noise opens ears for warning with lullaby comforts

comparisons breed partiality

responding to needs and solving problems are culture

nobody can change ethnicity

a cultural tool inheritor, a wannabe moralist guards his tone

a white wedding gown


a white-washed wall

neither guarantee virtue, virginity, veritas

where « light » projects nationalism, Christian sacrifice cowers

where darkness cowers, there comes regret

young men! obey those « Old » guys!

young women! weep for your oikos!

even the land can vomit people

glorify God; enjoy him forever

kinship is not weakness; neighbours are not enemies.
