We live in a world inundated with devices
Cooing birds, rustling leaves nothing entices.

Laughter of kids at play and oldies on bench seem far off
Ask some one to go with you for a walk, invite a scoff.

Neighbors, friends, even own brothers pass by
No one looks up even if someone were to die

Buried in screens make-world dreams
Oblivious to pickpockets rapes or screams

Person sitting next to us may be in tears
Everyone is buried in missing out fears

The one who’s next n cares for you is ignored,
And the one only seen on screen is adored

A beggar in a food fair, we’ve lots to stare
Appetite is gone still hunger gnaws there.
