The Modern Ages of Man

by Prashant Nair

Man plays a vital role in life

First starting of as a crying baby

Destroying any fragile object that crosses its path

Next the schoolboy.

Dreaming about his football idol

While the exasperated teacher tries to explain fractions

Then the teenager.

Exercising desperately for those perfect muscles

Next the cool, calm, calculated business executive

Wearing suits while wielding a briefcase and mobile phone

After that the father.

Answering his child’s questions, such as “Where do babies come from?”

Then the grandfather.

Reciting stories from his dying memory

Then the Grim Reaper strikes the dying man

Turning him to ashes
