The Thinker Who Facepalmed - Poem by Waseem Sherif

I have heard of a thinker
a man that seems
in search for an answer

bearing the world on his shoulders
he had to sit down
to contemplate further

They said Rodin is his maker.
honestly I don't care.
sometimes the creation
is more important than the creator

He looks down; He thinks far
far beyond his time
and into our modern scars:

the current state of our minds,
a collective degradation,
money and fame, the new divine.

Images of the modern bane
golden teeth and drooling mouths
vacant eyes, a veil of shame

Poor thinker, now full of qualms
it seems to me all he did
was his version of a facepalm.
