Treasure Island

Palas Kumar Ray

(India)

2009 A.D


A page mark of time, the year 2009
people do not rhyme, yet remain fine.

They'd rather listen to music for hours
walk for a mile talking through towers.

Sitting before screen they'd rather chat
for hours they'd gossip once they'd start.

Someone would like to watch only T.V
Sports, soaps and news whatever may be.

Electronic age has made people smart
living in an era of science and living art.

    Made me think of Chaplin's film 'Modern Times'. Though the theme is different in the film, the flip side of progress is finely etched in the film and your poem. Write on, voice of time! !
    Cheers.

    Certainly your rhymes remain fine. I like your couplets. And your
    wit and wisdom.

    Warm regards,

    Sort of built Gods and made them into idols. People have made GOLDEN CALF'S as in the days of Moses. A lost sense of priority has erupted greatly. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
