Melamine And The Future

How come many mothers forgot that breastmilk is STILL,
And ALWAYS will be BEST, for babies suckling lips???

What’s next then?

The twinkling of a star turning into cliché,
Repeated only in nursery rhymes?

Memories of long walks drowned by the ever turning,
Wheel s of cold, metallic and unfeeling cars?

The Lover’s Moon losing its magic,
Against all of electronic medias?

Bill’s words fading to echoes of classroom walls vandalized,
By students apathetic  of Romeo and Juliet’s tragic lives?

The aroma of home cooked meals forever gone from,
Refurbished houses whose kitchen’s gravitas are nuke boxes (and limp pastas)?

Damp “Homes” generally viewed by all as dumping grounds
For graying (former) loved ones seen as burdens?

Many more young lasses cramming fingers against throats,
In pursuit of vanity and skeletal perception of beauty?

Stock market denizens hurling their bodies against speeding trains?

Green and be-heroed paper bills overrated,
Against all other of life’s simple joys? 

How many still remembers…

That plants cure and most meds packaged in fancy boxes,
Are miracles drawn by roots from the humble earth?

That the most sure fire way of treating boo boos,
Is TLC to the umpteenth level?

That even though a day’s good job brings satisfaction,
It can never compare to a loved ones approbation?

That one can never get enough of kids’ hugs and kisses?


It will really be a future oh so bleak,

When humanity’s mind- to simple but powerful truths,

Becomes weak…

When mankind forgets the true value of NATURE and NURTURE, we will surely forget to 
define our humanity! There's tons more of examples why and how this is happening. If you 
can add up, I'll put them up there! Thanks!

    Interesting list above George. I would like to see you write of the beauty of each GOOD thing above. And George, "Before Mao" is about the result of the Chinese Revelution. Keep thinking good thoughts. Debbie

    This is excellent my friend. Nature and nurture are both integral parts of the process of upbringing. Everything counts for the betterment of humankind. I like the philosophy and logic behind this poem. Mothers are naturally sent from heaven with a special mission. Great job! ~Joseph

    this is all too true and sad to know that society has come to this, vanity is a striving after the wind, people are so caught up in spending millions of dollars to improve what was already fine to start with that is just to name a few plastic surgery, millions of dollars spent on lavish homes and cars, and the little people like nurses and teachers, firemen and policemen are paid so little and do so much more, you have captured the essence of a selfish society, great write, take care D-nyce

    George your poem Melamine is the Future. No doubt the fine aspoects of life and virtues are being eroded today in a society. This is tragic. You have painted a remarkably vivid picture of this tragic situation. Very well-done. Thanks for appreciating my Haiko Love and Loyalty. Mohammad
