Have you ever heard of the silk road?
The shimmering silk that we all know
The secrets for millennia of how it was made unknown
To adorn oneself in silk was a sight of prestige.
All thoughts of richness that have the mind under siege.
But it was not only commodities it was thoughts that would besiege.
It was thoughts that would affect all our mentalities.
Form the very structure of our realities.
Christianity, Buddhism, and many more.
Were all implored.
On the silk road.
It's so old.
And a way of ideas being exchanged without warfare.
Though there was pandemics that did scare.
Like the bubonic plague that traversed the deserts haze
On the back of traders.
Still better than on the backs of raiders.
Monks and monasteries of all persuasion.
Attired the silk road like decorations.
Connecting humans all across the globe
With the genesis of this being cause a Greek and a roman wanted to wear a silk robe.
Still memories stowed.
Ideas of the world did flow.
As fast as the wind does blow.
It was the closest thing to the interweb.
Only they used camels and horses instead.
Interconnectivity of humanity has never been dead
