21st century

The 21st century the most developed of times 
Technology the master of automatic minds
Digital communication, miraculous new finds yet unable to connect to those of mankind 

Genetic testing, constant investing, a new version of humankind nesting

Robotic hearts of metallic black
Droughts and starvation
turned away backs
Peaks of the highest illuminated steel
A thousand feeble frames, jaded as they kneel
Towers of silver, platinum and gold
Clay weathered geriatric foundations of mould

The foreseeable future a nostalgic moment of the past as the new scintillating minds contemplate firing the cremating blast
