STATES: STRONG AND PRETEND

Posted: June 10, 2014 in Uncategorized

Photopoetry by Crazy Horse

there are states

and there are states

the basic units of

the international system

since the Treaty of Westphalia

states are the same

states are however different

they differ in their capacity

to fulfill the generic

functions of a state

such as defense

of its national territory

and maintenance of

sovereignty

some are strong ones

some are weak

pretend states

they are

and tragically

their leaders

know not

the real score!
