THE SHACKLES OF MODERN SLAVERY

Written by Bernardowor
  • 01 Oct 2015

Today’s world is but a concrete plantation
Thus our materialistic quest for exultation
Has begotten an unbeknownst visitation
Plaguing us like locusts upon vegetation
 
Behold! A vile modern slavery infestation
Damning us to a state of total devastation
Building itself a solid and good reputation
By veiling its silent dogmatic exploitation
 
Went from a phase of global experimentation
To this final phase of global implementation
Our brain washed society offered it salutation
Without vacillation or the slightest hesitation
 
“Money makes the world go round” a true quotation
That has society indoctrinated from time of gestation
Now everything revolves around this monetary station
As a life sustaining mode and means of transportation
 
Our needs, wants, dreams depend on its rotation  
Without money our lives face a great limitation
It is indeed a major cause of mental agitation
Also causes physical and emotional irritation
 
Emancipation from it, demands confrontation
Not a physical but a mental self-consultation
Through soul reflections and deep meditation  
To overcome this enslaving financial mutation
