Human Disposal

We live in a

Disposable world

~

Itʼs not, really

But we often treat it

As though it were

So much became so cheap

So rapidly. And how

Convenient and

Easily replaceable!

Materialism and capitalism —

A subtly strong cocktail

Inexplicably drinkable.

But this a blind step

(too far) … forward?

Reverse humanism, I’d say

When did we begin

To treat humans

As cheap and convenient,

And easily replaceable?

~

In a world so quick

To dehumanize, perhaps

An alternate word used

Might cajole our brain

Pattern and response–

Allow me to restate:

When did we begin

To treat relationships

As cheap and convenient

And easily replaceable?

~

Is it now that we are

Able to connect

Anywhere with

Anyone? That intimacy

Belongs solely to the

Confines of romance

Or just a bygone era?

We treat people as

Disposable. We do.

~

But our fellow humans

Are intricate snowflakes.

No duplicity of spirit.

Perhaps in appearance —

Twins and mirrors

Yet unique individuality

Comes standard

With every new born

~

A paradigm shift

would be delightful, no?

To hold fast and revere

With reinstated principles

Not for posterity’s sake

But to actually live by:

Courtesy, respect

Dignity, justice

A proper use of

scary words like

Discrimination and judgment

A significant reduction of

Assumption, ignorance

and unattended bias

~

Add patience and consideration

~

For giving to people

And for the thinking on

Of such important ideas

Things and thoughts
