Daily Prompt: 21st Century Citizen
Do you belong in this day and age? Do you feel comfortable being a citizen of the 21st-century? If you do, explain why — and if you don’t, when in human history would you rather be?
Photographers, artists, poets: show us MODERN.
I think every age has its ups and downs. For example, Renaissance Europe had dashing gentleman and beautiful ladies, but no telephones. Probably very primitive toilets.
So I think I’m fine just where I am. That being the boring response that it is, I decided to try poetry this time, using the abab rhyme scheme.
Modernity is subjective,
Constantly changing shape;
Used as an invective
If heydays be used as measuring tape;
Used as highest praise
To the pretentious, or a new age
artiste; Lazy days
And broken ties cause great rage.
You can be modern in thought
In word or in deed;
But the question remains: what
is ‘modern’ indeed?
