The Modern World

This is not the golden age.
It is the future reeling from 
earthquake, hurricanes,
lost innocence, lost generations:
Who will cry?

Their voices are muted
beneath the blare of the trumpet sounders
who cry for justice: human rights,
the environment, save this, save that,
save the world.
They do not see 

In the modern world,    
after the dark-age, beyond skyscrapers,
escalators  and aeroplanes, without concord.
They do not see the muting things
nor hear the muted voices.
In the modern world, 
do not feel.
