Exiled Immigrants

Vintage Words

 

And I thought all these years

that moving from a small town

to a big city was homelessness.

I was wrong. Bombs never

fell and took out relatives

or entire neighborhoods.

.

Work was scarce, but not impossible.

The schools worked poorly, but

they worked every day. Learning

was just memorizing. Reading opened

galaxies of worlds. Education

was experience accumulated, yet too

much experience tended to explode

into wisdom. Mental migration of this

ilk has saved the lives of millions.
