Business and culture

by ‘Okusitino Mahina

Diffused throughout the globe

Are the many beliefs of Europe

Sprinkling over the Friendly Isles

Scattering yet uncompromising

Overflowing yet tempting


There is a string of systems

Of economics mixed with politics

Of communism with oligarchy

Of facism as a rule of tyranny

Of capitalism with democracy


Business and culture

They co-exist yet oppose

One, the ideology of individualism

The other, a theory of collectivism

Resolved only by time and space



But, what is your say?

Make your judgement

Acquired only through sacrifice

Should you seek harmony

It is in the land of peace
