Fascination!


I am fascinated with these sheep,
Those wear the uniforms of pants and caps,
Doing the repetitive work from dawn to dawn,
In the manufacturing facilities and offices,
Well fed with non nutritious canned and fast food,
Gulping the multi vitamins and minerals as supplements,
Eyes not wide open to see the world and fellow workers,
Face is kept stern, as if stand in front of the dictator,
Walk in group, but not communicable to share the wits,
Their furs are sheered as the taxes to be naked,
To go merry around, all around the year,
Doing the same repetitive task at work and home,
I am really fascinated with these sheep,
Have we travelled this long distance,
Since the Lord made a man out of sand,
To make ourselves to be the sheep, well obeyed,
Ready to be slaughtered for the welfare,
The economy of riches and potato chips for the poor.

poet Katharine Lee Bates

O beautiful for spacious skies,
For amber waves of grain,
For purple mountain majesties
Above the fruited plain!
America! America!
