Vanity Of Life
Author: Joseph Ogbonna


The beautiful things of today,
tomorrow become outdated.
A porsche building in the sixties
is now numbered with the shanties.
The most recent and unspotted
models of choice vehicles may
soon be phased out from our Cities.
Fashions and styles of yester years
are today mocked by fellow peers.
Tastes are as much ephemeral
as our lives are temporal.

------- Author's Notes -------

nothing new under the Sun and the vanity of pursuing ephemeral things.
