Modern World

This is the modern
Stairway to heaven
An escalator built
For a comfort ride
And on either side
Are categories of purchases
Commodities are now
Trinkets to enlightenment
Because we have no navigation
For any other
Upward rise

Who said that you can’t
Take it with you
When you go?
Custom carriage baggage
Is supplied
And the child
Who reaches the top
With the most toys
Wins here just the same
Nowadays even
The angels know
This is the only
Possible game

Like most people, I have a number of sides to me. The most interesting one probably emerges through my writing, hence this blog. I love to read, and also to write, and so this is a way to share both.

  1. Enjoyed this. Seems the child with the most toys winning is no different than here on Earth.
