31 Days Of Poetry- Day 29- Babies' Babies- by Shola Phebian

All from the very root!
The first pair sought,
just one thing, “this right”,
this liberty and personal might.
all has now given birth,
to multiple plights.
Non, now ever walk upright,
not on this crooked path.
Overwhelmed is our light,
will it ever shine forth?

Still on the root!
The proposed route,
ruined tender thoughts,
liberation now cast us all out.
From the bit,
now comes heat.
Milk teeth,
can now bone crush and eat.

How you, they now cheat,
advancement they call it.
Unshod now are tiny feet,
treading the field of damnation,
in this erring “nation”.

Results ?
Despaired hearts,
as the wisdom book no longer deserve merit,
words to the maker, no longer a sacred rite.
All, disasters brought.
Every corner now filled with,
debris-like cratures from debasing acts,
so abounding is the anti-social kites,
hovering in our skies.

All from the root,
the creator’s wrath.
The root brought us to this route,
Babies’ babies in circulation.
