A Paper World

a poem by

Simon M V J

Watch humanity chasing paper all the while
With inhumane fervour

Quite like its nature it wraps a person
Completely till he’s unseen

Neither scissor nor fire can quell
His pangs

Neither hell’s fires nor earthly dungeons
Tame his desire

With beady eyes, he looks around
For more

Imagine a world where there is no paper
Green beauteous virgin

Imagine a world where people are human
Paperless, but truly rich
