Saving this Generation / Poem by Eden S. Trinidad

Poem by Eden S. Trinidad

 
 
Saving this Generation
 
We often heard tough men says, ‘let us save this generation’
Save from whom?
Save from where?
Save from what?
 
From antipathy? From World War 3?
or from the diseases brought by new rendezvous
new drugs conceived and invented
a multi-billion business of rich
and the hungry for fame and money
 
Poor guinea pigs, poor, poor countries!
 
illicit connivance
like my perfume illicit fragrance
smells so good to me
too tempting not to engage
let’s save this generation
from the wrath of the Highest
who burned Sodom and Gomorrah
do not look back, do not even try!
 
But, wait…
“Can we regenerate this world with our poetry?
With our friendship, will it become new?”
