Chapter 8 Dispersed
The saga continues – rebellion and pride have led to enforced dispersal to fill the sphere to look after it, but they don't work together, nor serve the Owner well.
So he who owned them all restrained them
from their proud, wrong plans.
They scattered, spread throughout the globe, to
live in smaller clans.
Communication hampered now
between the neighbouring groups:
their complex languages will show
divergences, with need of study long to comprehend,
each other’s speech, desires;
and so there is a squabbling trend,
suspicious thoughts impede,
mistrust, misunderstandings grow,
misjudgements, selfish greed,
and culture little shared –
though ancestry and Source the same –
love scarce, because they’re scared.
And evil spirits discord stir, provoke,
discouraging the fallen folk
from friendly gestures to each other,
attempts to understand a foreign brother,
nor contrite, meek approaches to their Maker.
