And you blame your neighbour for being a stranger

November 27, 2018

And you blame your neighbour for being a stranger

Your Christ is Jewish
Your car is Japanese
Your couscous is Algerian
Your democracy is Greek
Your coffee is Brazilian
Your Chianti is Italian

And you blame your neighbour for being a stranger

Your watch is Swiss
Your shirt is Indian
Your radio is Korean
Your holidays are Tunisian
Your numbers are Arabic
Your writing is Latin

And you blame your neighbour for being a stranger

Your figs are Turkish
Your bananas come from Cameroon
Your salmon comes from Norway
Your lemons come from Morocco
Your lychees from Madagascar
Your peppers from Senegal

And you blame your neighbour for being a stranger

Your mangoes come from Bangui
Your coconuts from Ivory Coast
Your pineapple comes from California
Your vodka comes from Russia
Your beer from Rhineland
Your oranges from Australia

And you blame your neighbour for being a stranger
