Can artificial intelligence advance so far
and replace what’s inherent and natural?
when almost all the things at par
changed diversely while some are gradual.
Fire ignites from the friction of two stones
water comes fresh from the spring
The man lived simply, humbly as skin and bones
but speaks with dignity, contented as he sings.
Man eats with bare hands
There’s no table etiquette required
Face messy with leftovers
but you’ll recognize the face of a happy man.
His clothes a scrap of leaf
hair untidy with clear bright eyes
he walks barefoot on the ground
carefree and brave towards the sky.
But the ground he tilled has changed so much.
gone is the lush and verdure pasture.
gone is the crystal clear water.
and gone is the innocent man.
The new era brought forth the millennials
sleek with convertibles and iPods
dainty with red wine and steak
stunning in black suit and emeralds.
Everything is automatic
Don’t blink your eyes or you’ll get static
Go with the flow, explore the odds
This change, after all, is a grace from God.
