The Man & The Machine - Poem by ramesh rai

God has made the man
the man has made the machine
the man can work without food
and without care, but the machine
can not work for a single moment

Machine should be made only
to make our life more easier
not to be dependent on it

Machine should not be for exploitation
Machine is certainly a gift of Human Civilization
but error of machine should be taken care

Machine should minimize our working hours
but due to invention of machine
man is compelled to work more

Human being is foregoing all pleasures of life
working days and night, no one is to answer
no one is to ask, but human being self
has become a machine, working days and night
without any fuel and rest in life, if so
invention of such machine certainly
shall be a curse for human life.

    Is there any way where I could contact you sir? I am an English teacher from the Philippines and our school will be using your poem as our Choral Elocution piece. Thank you! (Report) Reply

    A fantastic poem and so true, man has forgot how to live a normal life, there is just too much
    going on to live a normal life.
