No longer na´ve to the pretense.
Like an ivory swan, that once told a story
About a culture, a people created from knowledge.
Overcome by the thirst for sophistication,
The need to know more-
Selfish and desperate-I am sojourned here.
This once unperceived location
Is where I shall stay, and yet, being here is a lie in itself.
luring you in, unknowing,
captive in its awe-inspiring familiarity,
