Does it seem to you, as it sometimes does to me, that we've sold our soul for the chance to sit at a table and pass some tasty samosas?
BTW, here's a poem by guest speaker Shifa Tauqir. Make of it what you will:
M'kay. I'm a bird. Tweet tweet.
I am an ant.
You are a giant.
Times are changing.
You are growing.
I used to crush you.
Now, I am overpowered.
Will this process ever be reversed?
Will I ever become me again?
I want to be a bird.I want YOU to be a bird.
