Mousetrap

Once upon a time
in the beautiful surroundings
people lived happily.
No fences, trees
laden with fruits,
birds and butterflies
sing together,
river flows to that tune.
Sun also very calm
Moon in her turbulence.
Lions and Tigers
visited to human problems.
What a lovely harmonious stone age?
Barbarous modern man changed.
He has forgotten the Ape and started barbecue.

Love this...the harmony ends with the crude word 'barbarous'...excellent...I read it because I have a poem with the same title...obviously two different thoughts...well done. Coach
