“Manifest Destiny,” so proclaimed
Two words, joined, so long ago
Claimed a domination
The west projecting future growth
As then, so too now
Language used to make a point
Now, covertly hidden
Thus, few noses out of joint. ..
There is a spirit out there
That would dominate the world
But is it our fear and anxiety?
That polishes this precious pearl?
If religion brings a peaceful mind
A quiet confidence of sorts
This,might be its saving grace
Replacing ‘judgment’ as a sport!
