In a corrupt system

In a corrupt system

remain stubbornly and fiercely honest.

The single honest man

in a system that is corrupt

is like a tall palm tree

standing among perennial brambles,

blades and grasses. That single

palm tree will remain

alone and lonely for

a long time but

not forever. From that

single palm tree will

come seeds that will fall

among the brambles blades and grasses.

The palm tree seeds will

germinate, grow and disperse over

the landscape. And in a matter

of time, the entire field

of perennials will become

a field of tall palm trees.

Among a people full of hate,

above all, love rate.
