Sheila White : The 1985 Man

The 1985 Man

Technology strides on ahead,
But man is dropping behind.
His social graces will soon be
Of Neanderthal mankind.

Chivalry is a redundant word,
Gentle manners are taboo,
From the steam and swamp of the jungle,
Modern man takes his cue.

Jaws of the predator open wide,
To swallow each victim whole,
Thus the man of nineteen eighty five,
Sans mind, sans heart, sans soul.
