A MESSAGE FROM A DEVELOPING WORLD- A poem by Malcolm Thorpe. "Your culture supplies us with knowledge. Our climate provides you with food. Your philosophy is to work the markets. Ours is to work the soil. Your technology is far advanced, your medicine is way ahead. So please extend the hand of friendship, instead of your arms of death."
