The Zoo Of Man - Poem by Dilantha Gunawardana

For society is a menagerie
A glorified Noah’s Ark
Fighting for her survival
In incessant torrents of heterogeneity
Palisades of religion and race
Pickets of color and caste
Where Babel tongues
Unveil the cacophony of discord

Yet beneath the facade of conflict
There lies the serum of an elixir
A timeless panacea
To harmonize
The masala of civilization

For beneath the veil
Of dissonance
There rests the universal language
Of love
