The Man & The Machine

God has made the man
the man has made the machine
the man can work without food
and without care, but the machine
can not work for a single moment

Machine should be made only
to make our life more easier
not to be dependent on it

Machine should not be for exploitation
Machine is certainly a gift of Human Civilization
but error of machine should be taken care

Machine should minimize our working hours
but due to invention of machine
man is compelled to work more

Human being is foregoing all pleasures of life
working days and night, no one is to answer
no one is to ask, but human being self
has become a machine, working days and night
without any fuel and rest in life, if so
invention of such machine certainly
shall be a curse for human life.

poet Percy Bysshe Shelley

We are as clouds that veil the midnight moon;

Streaking the darkness radiantly!--yet soon
