My Poetry

Eyes Reflected

A big eye was born in the eye of man,
And this eye invaded the homes of men,
In the last half of the 20th Century.

Passive eyes looked at the big eye,
As it entertained, educated and controlled,
The little eyes for two score years.

The big eye was refected in the little eye,
And the little eyes captured the big eye,
In the last decade of those hundred years.

Passive eyes became active eyes, eager eyes,
Proactive and reactive eyes, searching,
Through the mind's eye of mankind.

The little eyes looked through the big eye,
Scanned cities, states, nations and WORLDS,
In the five years before the millinium.

Some little eyes looked though the big eye,
And grew big at seeing what they should not,
In the years before the silver bowl is broken.

Family eyes, religous eyes, government eyes,
Greedy eyes too all rushed to view the big eye,
And month after month the pace was quickened.

The big eyes allowed the little eyes to travel,
beyond the bonds of body and earth,
To crawl on other worlds at the speed of light.

Where will these four eyes of mankind be,
In a year, five years, a decade, or a century?
At what speed will eyes travel in time?
