Ancient preferences and choices
Still directs the modern era,
While the grounds for their inception are surpassed.
By upholding what’s been founded
On dissimilar conditions,
The solutions we need now become suppressed.
What was based on former insights,
Old political agendas,
Gone environmental needs or early lore
May obstruct today’s endeavors
To make suitable adjustments.
We must find new ways to move on and restore.
