Maria C. Costa (Portugal)
A Clamour for Humanism
Countries, peoples across the world
Are in need of a wide, free gate
Through which noble principles,
Human values are supposed to circulate.
Not just business,
But other commitments
Are urgently expected
In the global scene.
Leaders, governments, authorities
Get rid of your obsessive greed
Say NO to corruption
Invest in jobs and education!
Youngsters are helpless
Children are starving
Yet millions are pumped
Into pockets privileged...
