Modernity, Modernity - Poem by Sylvia Chidi

Modernity, Modernity
Is a life-threatening ideology
Modernity, Modernity
Is a circle of endless technological infinity!

We are mass-designed not to think
We are mass taught to react and speak
In every office is the usual power-craving bitch
A charming parasite in form of a vicious leech
And when you finally get to suss her out
Drown your sorrows with a bottle of stout

Modernity, Modernity
There is no more paternity
Life does not represent eternity
This is just a fatal fatality
This is just a calm calamity

Great debts can be caused by university
Technology eventually enforces uniformity
Only a few in life will enjoy real prosperity
Live will always need to strive on diversity
Social norms are in place to ensure conformity
But most importantly
I have to say quite urgently
Nature is beautifully designed artfully

So many things are done in extremity
Simple people live their life wholeheartedly
While other people live their life in full vanity
I can recall these words quite perfectly
Modernity, Modernity

Soon the machine will become the human
And the human will become the machine
Our thoughts and speech are programmed
While the World is ruled by mad men farmed
That do not care of mass destructive harm
Everyone wants to steal from each other's palm

We are all walking on dangerous territory
Modernity may be a blast from the past
That has just happened quite fast
Who is to say that modernity will last?
For a time will come when it will treat us as modern outcasts
