Materialism

This Materialistic World,
With Materialistic Men,
What good will it avail of me ?
An Instrument maybe.
With Materialistic Goals,
And Materialistic Aims.
What good will it serve for thee?
An efficient Machine maybe.
They said !!
That the machines would take over the world.
But isn’t it already theirs to be??
We are in a dream maybe .
All this money in the world,
The fame, an image.
Aren’t those bars of prison.
Don’t you see.
We all are blind prisoners maybe

    I am trying to do it through contemplation and minimalism but maybe other readers need some clues … or should they remain locked in?

  5. Maybe they need to feel those bars themselves .
    They need to find a solution, and everyone has a unique one I guess

    To the stronger order faster man .
    But sooner or later the man who wins

    Reminds me of one of my compositions, emerald cage, but yours is succinct and laconic. I love it, and your lyrical approach is refreshing among this myriad of free verse and zero-stanza formats.
    Rage on, poet of old!
