Life is such slavery


AM, PM, AM
Rushing round the clock in circles
Five days a week
Without enough sleep
Life is such slavery

Modern gadgets
Round the clock news
One must come up, live with
World’s ideas and views
Life is such slavery

In the world of changing fads
Fast foods and enticing ads
Heavy make ups and silicon implants
What’s real what’s a transplant
Life is such slavery

Wanting, craving, wanting
More, more …and more
Slogging on weekdays
Weekends for house chores
Life is such slavery

Where is the time for a poem or two
A swing with the sweetheart
A walk in the woods
A swim in the river, a day in the fields
Life is such slavery

Life lives us
Or we live life
Where is the time to read,write,reflect and act
To sing and dance, for a little romance
Life is such slavery
