Chain of Flowers

Extreme situations create extreme people,
resulting in the culmination of upheaval;

Mediocrity and settling for mundane,
Barely getting by will drive anyone insane;

Eliminating every bit of competition  
What will remain of human innovation?

Displaced by a technological onslaught, 
Fresh ideas can’t be built by a robot; 

Nothing to lose leads to defiance; 
Critical thinkers, they never stay quiet;  

The meaning of ‘progress’ has become blurred 
change should lead to a better world;
A more peaceful society should emerge; 
Interconnected by a chain of flowers.
