What do you think this poem is about?

For Example: love, art, fashion, friendship and etc.


A mad rush, competition and meaningless race in everything
Everywhere has made human world into a mad, mad world!
Is this mad race in all walks of life necessary for progress?
Due to this, wrong persons are at the top of helm everywhere!

Commercial advertisements provoke mad rush for prizes;
Even in off seasons rebates sustain mad rush for benefits;
Advance bookings for train and plane services create rush;
And quick sales of tickets spiral up black tickets sales rush!

Cinema created mad rush to motion picture on the silver screen;
Television then created gluing of masses to TV screen all day;
Now Computer has swayed the hearts and minds of kids and elders;
For news, games and fun combining all in one for communication!

Everywhere there is rush for job, education, worship, election, etc.
Is this the product of civilisation or madness let loose on mankind?
