Culture - Poem by Sylvia Chidi

If we put closure to culture
Then in isolated torture
We suffer as human creatures

So shall we remain cultured?
And mature slowly in grace
Or attempt losing face
At a certain time or a place!

Even the scriptures and sculptures
Historical or man-made
That we rely upon with to trade
Are not exempt from culture

So what is it about culture?
That makes a pleasant picture
This cultivated feature
Inspiring us to venture into adventures
Nod our heads in distasteful gestures
At certain unpleasant natures

For the values a society captures
With or without structure
Right now or in the future
If I may have to lecture
Is acknowledged as culture!
