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.
