Generation To Generation - Poem by Rm.Shanmugam Chettiar.

I am lazier than my father
And my son is lazier than me.
I learn more than my father
And my son, more than me.
I earn more than my father
And my son, more than me.
Am I secure as my father was?
Is my son secure as I am?
Generation to generation,
Do we progress or regress?

    Thanks for sharing your thoughts, view and concept. There is so much pondering in this and would cause one to really look deeply into their lives to see whether or not they have progressed or regressed.
    This is well worded, well expressed, with a good flow and rhythmn from beginning to end, and the imagery and message within is so succinct that it leaves no doubt to the view you are portraying. Many blessings to you (Report) Reply
