Bironga Chadwick Poems
The Irony In Life
The paradox of our time in history is
We have taller buildings, but
Wider freeways, but narrower viewpoints.
We spend more, but have less;
We buy more, but enjoy it less.
We have bigger
houses and smaller families;
More conveniences, but less time.
We have more degrees but less sense;
More knowledge, but less judgement.
More experts, yet more problems;
More medicine, but more ailments.
We drink too much,
Smoke too much,
Spend too recklessly,
Laugh too little,
Drive too fast,
Get angry too quickly, ...
I Love My Annirah
If love comes in colours,
Then I'll go for whites,
If love comes in songs,
Then I will think of blues,
If love comes in dreams,
Then I join the sleepy heads,
But if love should come in humans,
Then I won't have to think twice,
