Contemporary Is Temporal - Poem by Martin Ntsako Manhisa

Contemporary is temporal
Time employes temporal
While old age is fatal
New bombs are ticking

An hour searches for neo
A day forgets about old
When a month is depreciated
A new year is appreciated

A decade bury its primitives
A century fossils resurrects
A modern life's components
A new chronicle commence

Contemporary is temporal
But time is eternal
Don't let time hire
Cause time will fire

Topic(s) of this poem: contemporary, time
