From the Third World

Come to the land of hospitality.
Give us a chance to put your stress at ease,
And you may ask where lies our fealty,
And all we say is that we wish to please.
There’s not much that we ask for in return
Except that you respect our traditions.
You may think there is much we need to learn,
And that we may lack certain ambitions,
But do not be fooled by our “poverty”.
That is no indication of our pride,
For our focus is not monetary.
We do not need that demon by our side.
Understand that not every nation
Shares in your money driven vision.
