The primitive Man.

On my tablet,

screen flashing data.

And  pictures,

music and all.

Everything in this one!

Movies, calendar and maps,

documents and sheets,

contacts and mails,

all in one!

man has advanced & how?!

 

The hunger of

the old man down the street,

Unable to move much!

The child running in the barest,

what improves his future?

The lady hugging her child close

to keep her baby warm…

The merciless butchering of pigs

and cows and chicks and all…..

The forests seen parse.

The rivers shallow.

The winters short and less severe,

the frequent droughts and floods

Ah! But yes, the MARS mission !

 

Man in space!

Planning to inhabit another planet!

When this is destroyed!

this I read on my tablet…

and the nuclear power generators!!

 

I wonder,

When this. Great Man!

Inhabits another planet,

will they, not experience the inequality?

No Humger, or Cold, or fear?

nor insecurity?

 

Nah!

Then it seems;

the rule of power.

Destroy, to rule, and yet again.

As seen in animals too!

 

Man has advanced the use of matter,

But Man has not advanced Man!

Or even attempted yet!

AS primitive…. he remains…. in fact!
