Comes with the Territory.You break it-you buy it!
There goes the neighborhood.We have a good Neighborhood(Watch!
Once we invaded their territories-we made the laws then!
Empires are neighborhoods extended within time duration.
All is temporary as power.Circles and councils diffuse control
Dictators,Kings,Armies concentrate.The future is all of us(or none
The past is tinpot territories-same earth,different titles over time.
7 Cities of Troy-Rome was not built in a day.Graveyard Earth Plot?
or Garden Community?Extend the territory of All.Sting purchased rainforests
to leave them pristine.We buy back land to protect Yellow Tailed Warblers habitat.
Where is there a home for Polar Bears?-on Coke cans?Extinct species call to us-
dodo,dragon,dinosaur-they wish to resurrect,but they have no space amongst us
Their territories like those of Genghis Khan,Napoleon,Alexander the Great
are cautionary Fables to entrance us -tales of Giants Among Ants
There is no room in the Ark for two of every creature.That was a rumor.Check your memo.
Territories change.We change.Maps change.We must change. Faster.
