+ Dignity – Humiliation

Rhymed reflections
by Francisco Gomes de Matos, a peace linguist from Recife, Brazil

When DIGNITY we produce
HUMILIATION let´s reduce

When DIGNITY we disseminate
HUMILIATION let´s eliminate

When DIGNITY we cultivate
HUMILIATION let´s extirpate

When DIGNITY we sustain
(From)HUMILIATIOn let´s refrain

When DIGNITY we include
HUMILIATION let´s exclude

When DIGNITY we announce
HUMILIATION let´s denounce

When DIGNITY we effect
HUMILIATION let´s reject

When in DIGNITY we excel
HUMILIATION let´s repel

When on DIGNITY we reflect
HUMILIATION let´s eject

Please add to these pairs of rhymed reflections. Use them in the various contexts where you DIGNIFY your DAILY DIALOGUES.
