Treasure Island

Thank y'all

I would like, I would like to thank you all…

Thanks to the Soldier that serves his country
Saying he has no well-power other than conformity

Thanks to the General for enforcing his authority
Implementing his orders in return for obedience

Thanks to the Politicians for all those promises
Keeping them is another case due to their emptiness

Thanks to the UN for being so powerful
Influencing only the weak who can't deal with weaponry

Thanks to the US for being so fatherly
Showing great strengths to assist the weak ones down

Thanks to TV for keeping the visions busy
Having an impact on all the aspects of reality

Thanks to the BBC for being so honest
Distributing news that's so politically biased

Thanks to Disney channel for being so clear
Sexualization of children from such a young age

Thanks to Music for all the richness
Making money by keeping them all in darkness

Thanks to Hip Hop for changing its principles
Getting infected to degrade its values

Thanks to the Celebrity culture for keeping the masses entertained
Blindly not aware about their surroundings

Thanks to Technology for making everyone attached to a screen
Busy with their devices always away from those in need

Thanks to "Religious" preachers for fuelling the conflicts
Keeping the hatred going between their followers

Thanks to God for creating us so differently
So we get to know each other not confront aggressively

Thank you Sir for reminding me all the time
For things that I know but choose to ignore

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Raleigh

EVEN such is Time, that takes in trust
Our youth, our joys, our all we have,
And pays us but with earth and dust;
   Who in the dark and silent grave,
