Motherland/Fatherland

MOTHERLAND/FATHERLAND
Olathe Poste Faux

Mankind was not the first to explore the Fatherland, but it is said that "he" emerged. While others contend that he appeared, whether from a garden or anotehr planet. Non-the-less we found our way from the darkness in order to evolve. The Earth, Motherland to all kinds, has nutured us and the Fatherland has fed and clothed us. At the same time it has instilled in all things awe and fear. The Motherland holds us - mankind - dearly to her breast to calm and soothe us, and to lend comfort to our fears. Together, the Fatherland/Motherland gives mankind their most passionate love, as if they were immortal.
