Changes Invariable (Iv) - Poem by Tajudeen Shah

Mosquitoes, Bugs, Beatles and Gnats,
Ants, Spiders, Rats, Snakes and cockroaches
All have got immune to the most toxins ever.
Epidemics have grown into Pandemics,
Calamities appearing in shapes varied,
Causing Human existence miserable.
I still gaze with the same luminous
At the fate of Man’s susceptibility.
When would there be trees again
Bearing fruits for man, birds and animals,
Rivers where fish with large eyes and
Silver scales swim in waters pure,
Air in due proportion of Oxygen
For man to breathe easy as before,
Rice and wheat, peas and potatoes
Free from chemicals, Meat and milk,
Fish and vegetable without warning,
Medicines from sources reliable,
Souls that find delight in serving?
Changes can’t always be for better,
Still, Man would only be content

    The unchanging change of change I guess is inevitable. You wrote this with a high degree of insight. I like your perspective on the issues you touched. How I wish all our leaders will be selfless, to tackle some of the questions raised by your poem. Thanks for sharing. Please read my poem MANDELA - THE IMMORTAL ICON. (Report) Reply

    All this will happen but after Armageddon....
    Man is the only species never gets content but with change only....
    Change which is the sole occupation of our existence.
    As man's mind meddling in matters beyond his capacities...
    Anyhow nice reading...

    I have gone through your poem series - Changes Invariable. Without exaggeration or distortion, you have enumerated the changes that have come over and the consequent maladies. Once mother Earth has been so pristine, the air so salubrious, the water sources, never clogged by rubbish, the yield of the land, luxuriant and healthy without toxins, our habitat soothing with clump of trees and vast stretches of vegetation. Gone are those days and I hear your lament over the bygone glory! GREAT WRITE! ! (Report) Reply
