Development Rights

Development Rights

We should all enjoy
The inherent right
To workshop endlessly
At international hotels
Seduced by calm and hygiene
On the veranda
By the pool
In evenly lit
Air-conditioned rooms of carpet
Dressed tables
Comfortable chairs

Our’s is a God given right
To nice refreshment breaks
Sumptuous lunches
Polite service
English gardens
Swaying palm trees
Spectacular views of Lake Victoria
Continuous power (almost)

So busy defining
Human rights
Participants forgot
The right to live in Peace
Freedom from Fear
