Loathing Humanity

your technological appendages
obsessed
touch tap click zoom tune
in
absorb
stimuluminati, entertain
dance
BOY
grossly engrossed
systematically enslaved
stagnant in a whirlwind
the eye of the storm
the turbine of progression
turn, turn, turn
churn
oblivious to your surroundings
advancing
all the time advancing
but toward what?
closer and closer we inch
toward an illuminated world
glowing with ignorant appeal
and superficial insensitivity
radioactivity
fall out
hi def
but who’s looking for a resolution
what’s left to resolve
do they even hear the issue

constant contact lacking content
excessive
judgments
conclusions mid projection
fencing in a boundless world
infinite information
endless education
yet you drown in a sea of product
placement
entertainment
situated
placed
carefully, thoughtfully, on your shelf
in your path
buy me
electric
turn me on
escape
stupefy
ignore
plug in and shut down
realistic realism
no use for reality
for truth
with screen time increasing, transcending
we’ll make our own

close your eyes
come out and join me
I know you won’t
I know it when I see it
acute superficial self involvement
how cute
absorbed
engorged
sinking
but don’t worry, it’s shallow
your universe is limited
and shrinking every moment
your small world
on artificial life support
it’s all a placebo
you’re Pavlov’s dog
but what happens when you can’t find Pavlov
and the bell is ringing all the time
your vision narrows, blurs
while mine is sweeping
expansive
expanding and sharpening
grip tightly the controls
eased by your Godly strength
you prompt all action
but who holds your controls?
whose hands grip them tightly?
who prompts your action?
or inaction?
who’s that whispering in your ear?
what’s that single slide?
whose hands crafted those shades,
that skewed your perception?
who’s your God?
that puppeteer?
a spectacle

who are you?
I am but a number
carefully calculating
but aren’t we all
the sum of our parts, factors
know your place

a perpetual power trip
tripping
get up – quickly
soon, they’ll round the sheep
for slaughter
pay attention
deficit
shut up- they’re coming!
