Weekly photo challenge : “Two subjects”

Nature and the Wheel

For Endless eons and centuries

Mother Earth lived naturally

Though she didn’t give equally

But balanced what she gave

The wheel when it came

Took from here and there it gave

Blind to balance, prone to greed

It caused inequality

Creating masters and slaves

My choice for this weeks challenge “Two subjects” – Nature and wheel. One natural, god’s gift to all humanity. The other man made, probably man’s biggest innovation till date. Nature makes no distinction between people of any caste, creed, gender or race. On the other hand the wheel, symbolizing transport in all forms, brought with it great opportunity for sharing and exchange. But fell pray to human greed becoming instead a herald-er of inequality. Transporting resources and fruits of labor without adequate compensation, thus creating a chasm of the haves and the have nots! the developed and the undeveloped! the takers and the givers! the rich and the poor! the masters and the slaves!
