People of today


Today in general
People are refined animals
People are redefined cannibals

Masses of bodies’ fat and flesh
Classes of individual thoughts, yet meshed
People, People of today
Most of them easily led astray

Today to be precise
The world is full of people
Some of which are nice or wise

There are those who are common
A lot easier to summon
Then followed by the enlightened
Wearing faces that are brightened
Some are with an awesome mind
Others are of a loathsome kind

People of today
The old with wrinkles
The young with dimples

They can be playful
They can helpful
They can be harmful
They can be spiteful
They can be lustful
There can be trustful
And they can be useful

People of today
In reality are full of vanity, I say it again
They complain even when there is no pain
Their common values are all the same
Money, fame and love is the name of the game
They exist only as on-key friends
When there is real money to spend

But people are people
Whether complicated or simple

Everyone regardless of attribute
Plays a role in life and contributes
Every person I look upon with an avid salute!

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

Whate'er we leave to God, God does,
And blesses us;
The work we choose should be our own,
God leaves alone.
