Workshop # 2

The dawn of civilization 
is a piece of history that we always love to look 
And imagine our own world, 
where it is today and the time it really took !
From the bullock cart and muddy road, 
to sonic jet and super highway 
The world has come closer, 
to build the bridges, and prevent any sway !

Modern science can take us 
from one pole to other with the blinking of an eye 
And allows us to communicate quietly, 
without any travel, just to say goodbye !
Now the people are fearless, 
'cause they have conquered the nature unknown 
By taming the odds against their will 
and in museums, they are neatly shown !

At times we are paying the tolls 
for the changes that we have made 
And thoughts start to wonder, 
when the devoted minds like to fade !
Solutions of pollution are taking time 
from our so-called beneficial plans 
And placing the "progress" back in a circle, 
to dignify the political clans!

Ancient life was harder in many ways, 
but people had some peace of mind 
Because of the honesty and simplicity 
that nowhere now we can really find !
Air was so cleaner, soil chemical free, 
and water was safer to drink 
But today the pollutants frighten us 
to stumble and help us to shrink !

True love and old respect are fading away 
quickly from the modern culture now 
While 'Internet' and 'Intranet' 
are taking over daily to direct our lives somehow !
Emotions or friendships may be expressed well, 
through the strokes of a keyboard or the mouse 
And now memory chips in compu-brain 
are sources of our knowledge, like a storage warehouse !

We appreciate the beauty of modern age, 
swamped with the whistles and bells 
Tangled with all kinds of progress 
over the time and buried well in all the tales !
But the dawn of present civilizations 
still allows us to miss, and leads us to think 
About life's simplicity or devotion to God, 
while it mends promised missing link!
