Hour 6

Silent reading project

This poem is about Aldous Huxley's "Brave New World" a book about colonial conformism and human segregation. I recommend this book to people who have a good perchance for dark literature as this book does get dark at some points. With all its talk of sterility and cold machinery.

Loss of natural rights

Genesis becomes a myth

God's ways are immoral

Cold centrifuges spin the lives

Of those born of steel tubes

Human Condition is no more

Alpha Omega Beta

Same but still segregated

Savages born of the mother's womb…

Forgotten, caged, unloved,

Oh great Ford of all who has made

We shall obey thee
