MODERN CULTURE

Watching flickering screens,
They do not see the Sun set.
Twittering and sending emails,
They do not communicate.
Driving their cars on the asphalt,
They do not notice Hawk in the tree.
Reading newspapers and listening to news,
They do not see Kingfisher on the bank.
Drinking bottled water,
They do not hear the ocean.
Looking for love,
They do not find it.
Seeking power,
They are brutally ruled.
Scrambling for gold,
Their souls rot and rust.
Playing games with each other,
They do not see the abyss at their feet.

Why not stop and look?
