Changming Yuan – II

Steeper Seesaws: Another Parallel Poem 




The higher the income, the lower the morals

The taller the building, the shorter the attention span

The bigger the house, the smaller the family


The more wealth, the less joy

The more conveniences, the less leisure

The more knowledge, the less judgment


The more medicine, the less health

The more protection, the less security

The faster the transportation, the slower the communication


The closer the network, the looser the relationships

The cleaner the environment, the dirtier the mind

The wider the highway, the narrower the perspective
