Within the memory of Humanity

N. Lygeros

Translated from the Greek by Athena Kehagias

Each strange chameleon
indulged in the memory
because they knew that it was the only way
to ensure that it shouldn't vanish.

In vain, intelligence was trying to be
the future of humanity,
the latter was in need of a past
which reminiscence couldn't provide.

The resistance against oblivion
couldn't be sufficient for the evolution,
the sacrifice
of strange chameleons
was also necessary.
