A So Called Rich Man’s Best Friend

A So Called Rich Man’s Best Friend long poem

Photo by pennuja

Gingerbread, Jellybean and KitKat with tiny sims,
Safely secured in everyone’s pocket like magical plastics ;
We carelessly treasure these gags,
As if we could preserve them;
For an entire life it seems.

Our helpless youth’s every moment,
Is glued to these Android handsets;
Blindfolded and hypnotized,
In a cyber-love affair.
And today’s Moms don’t need to sing,
Sweet and so difficult lullabies anymore,
To fall asleep their freshly blooming buds;
Because children’ve learnt to Crush Candies,
Along with their parents every night.

Ooh..! We all tower-less men of 2015,
Elusively thinking to be grounded and well-towered;
Struggling quiet hard for some loyal fidelity,
Are mere victims of ethereal orgasms;
Stabbed and screwed by our sexually charged weapons.
Living in an elusive World of reality,
A reality of our own;
Our any free moment freely hangs out with,
Apple and Nokia;
May be Samsung or Motorola;
Never-mind this man-made fancy dies one day,
Lies every day but;
Nevertheless it has proven to become,
A so called rich man’s best friend.

Ooh..! No not yet,
We’ve consciously realized the quintessential futility;
Of this scientifically made mortality,
Delicately packed in an immortal disguise.
Selling theft and cyber-crimes,
Blinking secrets to blackmail in a porn mind;
I wait for the day,
Bet for the new Sun;
When the new Man,
Wouldn’t even spittingly rely upon;
These latest version machinery disorders,
To traverse across borders;
Make new love,
In a new tomorrow’s land.
