    a brutal
                                  emergence
    from a
                                  cloistered
                           existence
                                   that once
                           softened
                                   the sharpest
                           edges of
                                   colonial benevolence
                           cracks now
                                   under the
                           heavy weight
                                   of progress
                           draining the
                                   tolerance of neighbors.
