Misguided Growth - Poem by Jonathan ROBIN

Man's grope for scope may bait time trap,
f[r]ee enterprise dares dangers deep.
Important: who is taught to keep
both time-lines taut and stop their snap?
Misguided growth? one sided crap,
consumer debit-card charge steep
speeds savings’ fall. The quantum leap
from nano to the moon mayhap
alas our children's chances sap
as most spend life as herded sheep
and few their home-grown harvests reap.
Unheard, unblessed by thinking cap,
most stumble down life’s cul-de-sac
from cot to coffin lack! lack! lack!
