Paradox Of A Modern Life - Poem by arvin bonbon

From twisted tales of once upon a time
When fire discovered man and man, fire
The jagged jaw that gnaws the raw drops
In disbelief, to great leaps and hollered laughs

Eureka! Now shouts the enlightened mind
Illumined, yet frowned by the ominous sign
The deafening silence chorus the animate sound
Towering Babels adorn once barren ground

An endless rat race burgeons to scrape blue sky
Hounding, pounding, buzzing, in monumental high
Beyond man’s triumphs we fail, rather impeccably
Unfettered we drown in the brittle Alps of our reality.
