Lust For Knowing

The lust for knowing what should not be known
is like the lust for loving who should not
be loved. With knowledge no man lives alone,
but lust for love cn help him hit the the spot.

Inspired by lines written the 20th-century writer and diplomat James Elroy Flecker, cited in a review of the exhibition of treasures from Afghanistan and James Cuno’s book Who Owns Antiquity? Museums and the Battle Over Heritage, cited by Steven C. Munson in Commentary,2008 (“Owning the Past”) :

We travel not for trafficking alone
By hotter winds our fiery hearts are fanned,
For lust of knowing what should not be known
We make the Golden Journey to Samarkand.

Eating The Wrong Kinds Of Food

Lust!
With the thoughts in your mind;
Lust!
Eating the wrong kinds of food;
Lust!
With the frame of your mind.
Lust!
With the evil sentiments around you;
And, love grows cold around you always.
Life!
Why is your preacher not telling you the truth?
Life!
Why is your teacher not teaching you the truth?
Lust!
With the confusion of the minds of many today.
 
Edward Kofi Louis

Look At Your Records

Lust!
Look at your records;
Of your past life and,
Of your ways today.
Lust!
Going to the top and,
Using the advantage to kill others;
Illegal lust!
You've lost the saltiness in you.
Illegal lust!
You've now lost the flavour of the love in you;
Lust!
With the worldly tunes in your mind.

  80.     

Using The Nations

Lust!
Using the nations to destroy each other;
Lust!
You have defiled your mind with fornication and adultery;
Lust!
What have you done with your knowledge?
Lust!
With lives wasted because of you;
And, you now have the guns in your hands.
 
Edward Kofi Louis
