Carol Argyris – National Pride

National Pride

Unified by a common legacy of particulates,
on a planet riven by violence,
maimed by religion, greed and pride,
small tribes insist upon their singularity,
upon their right to stand behind a wall
and sing of their imaginary uniqueness.

Carol Argyris was born in England, lived in Belgium, and now feels Scotland to be her first real home. She has lived in the area of the Moray Firth for the last 30 years. Recently she began writing poetry and in 2013 was fortunate enough to have poems published in several small-press magazines.
