There is wind where the rose was,
Cold rain where sweet grass was,
And clouds like sheep
Stream o'er the steep
Grey skies where the lark was.

Nought warm where your hand was,
Nought gold where your hair was,
But phantom, forlorn,
Beneath the thorn,
Your ghost where your face was.

Cold wind where your voice was,
Tears, tears where my heart was,
And ever with me,
Child, ever with me,
Silence where hope was.

Decolonising syllabi

"Philosophers such as Plato and Kant are removed from syllabus because they are white"

A crazy idea, Voltaire is a victim too. Well, he was white after all. @Bubbly, never mind, they will leave 'Othello':

    Click bait headlines. The students who are "demanding" the removal of these philosophers are from the School of Oriental and African Studies. I guess they would prefer a bit more diversity. That said, try as you might, you can't ignore Plato.

    Well, I hope you can't. :)
