Conundrum of Modern Life

Higher, faster, richer
We want everything so quick
Sloughing away obstacles
Our new love is grandeur and slick

Nothing succeeds like success
This defines our approach
Wealth creation is admired
A slowdown we do loathe

Slowness, patience, conscience are passé
As economic indices soar
Shahrukh and sex sell
and the economic engine roars

The Indian juggernaut rolls
and aspirations rocket sky high
The balloon blown to monstrous proportions
the tipping point is nigh

Brace yourself, invest some time
in human values endured
Returns might take a long time coming
but goodwill is assured
