About the Poem

A country guy wonders about the strange sense of "Comfort" he found in the City, getting to the point where he finds out these people as "deshumanized" ones. At the end, a hint and some friendly advice.

This poem was written on a napkin, on April 28, 1990 in a MacDonald´s located in a Mall in Panama City.

A Few Visitor Comments

Jacques
I liked it because I feel related to it. The structure and the rhymes were excellent for me and I perceive some sense of humor, even though it seems to be a serious subject.

Deshumanized (Comfort)

"Wrapped"
inside walls,
"trapped"
under malls.

"Comfort" drawns
your human nature,
you become a creature
so much like a pawn.

Serving
your own device,
deserving
a tide of vice.

A cloud of cold
gides the Truth
under the Foot
of what you
haven´t been told.

Face the Sun,
have some fun
as a creature
proud of his
human nature
