We Set Foot again on Same Rake…

POETRY FORMAT, 27 Feb 2017

Adolf P. Shvedchikov – TRANSCEND Media Service

We set foot again on same rake,
We hear the clash of the same bloody swords,
Maybe they’ve become more acute,
And we are now more cynical!
We have computers and mobile phones,
But we don’t care about the law!
We are all connected by the Internet,
But everyone lives alone in virtual space!
We don’t care about tomorrow,
We are victims of selfishness.
We threaten someone now
Not with a gun but with a nuclear bomb!
We have forgotten about our past,
This handwriting is well familiar!
We set foot again on same rake,
We hear the clash of same bloody swords…
