A Return to the Back World

Once a time ago
Humen were naked.
No clothes to wear,
No shame of each other.
Because, was unknown what it was.
Time passed, present world came.
Let the humen be seen,
How they started already being uncovered again;
Inspite, lack of knowing and understanding.
Already made dresses cut,
To show the humen fully nude.
Seems as if wishes come alive once more in mind,
For a return to the back-world again.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

In the past, the aboriginal people were naked.
They didn't know that body should be covered. So, normally they didn't have shame.
'Was unknown what it was' - the reason why should be covered.
The past days had already gone. Present world, where we live in, has arrived.
But where are we improved? Our improvement is progressive that we are about to be naked again!
The past men didn't know civility. But we, todays men, know civility.
Yet we certainly watch our one more appearance on Television- very dirty.
I think people want to go again to the barbaric world. Isn't it funny?

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
