Some transmutations!

Jeewan Ramlugun

For a time, we were ‘We’;

back in history

being one community

was a way

that held sway,

reciprocity, mutuality


in organic solidarity.


That did not hold

for long, as progressively

‘We’ split into ‘Me’ and ‘You’,

even antagonistically,

some competitiveness

a necessary catalyst

for progress of a sort,

no longer interdependent,

the nexus turned mechanical

and transactional.


Now in an acute existential

crisis, with nemesis at large,

even when safely distant

sentiments converge,

a common threat

proving humbling,

to a collective cause rallying,

one’s perilous plight

another’s fright.
