All False Show - Poem by Sharad Chandra
Horses and dogs will wear diapers
men will roam naked
flowers will bloom in meadows
sans butterflies and sparrows
earth all dry and cake-d.
Grass and trees will turn into stones
men will be nothing but cloned clones –
all false show, concrete and paper.
Eve will eat alone her apple
Adam by himself will grapple
with the new eventuation
no one will talk to anyone
no one will need anyone
self contained and self sufficient
each will live for himself
to his utmost satisfaction.
There will be single mothers and single fathers
men will marry men and women will have women husband
babies will be designed
bearing looks and qualities
as enumerated by the aspiring parent
to be born at a time suitable and convenient.
Millions of baby manufacturing units will come up
markets will boom in bio-materials—
surrogate mothers, sperm donors
in assisted reproductive method
flaunting high quality cryogenic freezers
a huge bank of frozen eggs and sperm
of great variety and wide selection.
Clever indeed, very clever,
man openly beating god
in falsity, forgery, spuriousness, and
in playing God.
