Modern World - Poem by Roger Naya
Every man in nature is alike;
It is absurd to divide such races
between civilized and savage,
developped and third world.
Man is a killing machine, there is no doubt.
We kill with our weapons and hunt for pleasure.
The urban society is a jungle.
With an abundance of buildings
and roads and automobiles.
Oh! how i hate the automobile.
A creation of ignorance
towards nature and mankind.
We call ourselves civilized?
Shame! I tell you.
The lies, the greed, the selfishness
of capitalistic schemes is the most
uncivilized we have become.
The need for power and desire,
have made wealth the purpose of life,
and turned men and women into beasts.
By what circomstances can one be
considered civilized? And approve better than others.
How dare one speak such falsehood.
The natural behavior of human beings
has proven, we will never be civilized,
no matter how modern our world.
Written to raise awareness to the western world we are not perfect as a society. As we think we are.
