Ages back this planet was barren
One morning dispersed life like sunshine
Species have evolved, flourished, perished
And a peculiar animal has appeared.
Started living and thinking together “Creation"?
Wondered at first About ‘itself’
And life around “No" it’s evolution?
Many later have thundered
Have grown and shown
Certain values unknown
Devised numbers, created letters
Became “man of letters"
Evolved into a poet, a singer
An architect and a philosopher.
Computer substitutes ‘its’ thinking
Neutron bomb threatens ‘its' living
Here explodes a bomb;
there arises a fanatic
Here changes a ruler;
there breaks out a war
Whatever might be the event
Senseless genocide of innocent people is imminent.
Many feel ‘man' has become a machine
No longer cherishes, relishes or nourishes
Values that are humane
And ‘behaves’ as ‘it’ wishes
But I feel
Unless we are humane again
Our existence is at stake
Though we are able to
Fly like birds
Swim like fish
Set our feet on moon
Roam in the space
Or have babies avoiding sex.
