SANITY

Let’s import sanity from the past
To distill the madness going wild in our present
Because humanity is falling fast
Empathy, mostly absent
…in our daily must

II
Order has now climbed a long tree
Hiding from the guns of chaos
Respect paying its antonym exorbitant fee
What has turned hit songs? Conversations formerly aos

III
The world is now upside down
Consciences are clogged with shamelessness
As indoor games turn dips which chips of fun
…are dipped in to sooth lips
…destroying its zips to sip laughter
…from notoriety turned norms
Tips of sages are completely dodged and redirected to kolo bins

III
Over emulation of foreign stimulations
…has now brought us to this strangulation of culture
Where children ungratefully abandon their earth makers
With a “My life” storm shake
Forgetting some hands held their young till they gained their thoughts

IV
This is the same problem that knocked out the birth interest
…of those battling extinction
Why will I procreate if I’ll live like an abandoned mouse
…in an-awaiting-for-death hostel
Far from my beloved at the tail end of my life?

V
Let’s import sanity from the past
To heal the ridiculousness of the present
Before we travel to the future
Leaving our generation with better structures
