82187 - The Time Bridge

N. Lygeros
Translated from the Greek by Athina Kehagias

The island of continent had to go through the stage
of preparation.
That was the only thing certain.
The love for Australia was not enough.
The alliance with America was not enough.
Because there was China’s expansionism in existence.
Because there was the time bridge.
What Japan had not achieved should not be allowed
for China to achieve it.
Neutrality had to be put to an end.
Peace was not everything
neither was multiculturalism.
The foundations were the same.
Freedom and democracy.
Nothing less.
No fascism had succeeded
in invading Australia
thanks to America’s intervention.
No communism was to succeed
with an invasion of the island continent
and that’s why the alliance
had to be made durable
but also multiple.
Because whoever is not afraid of you geopolitically
will inevitably attack you.
