adrian bordaArt By: Adrian Borda

We as man,

Pay deference

To insensate machines

And through imitation

We as man become

That which we beseech

*

Atop funereal clouds

We regress

Unable to fathom

The depth

Of our earth

Scarring beneath

Of what use

Is prevention

When I live now

Unscathed?

Such is the attitude

Of a man

Whose comprehension

Of poverty lies only

In the delay

Of a quenchless greed

    Of poverty lies only

    In the delay

    Of a quenchless greed”

    Such wise words and all round powerful poem.
