The Revolution is in our living rooms
and it is digitized!
There’s inbox, outbox, and dropbox
with miles of cables, sockets and dockets,
And endless satellite links
to display websites in their thousands.
We spend hours on search engines,
drowned in the world of instant-
Messaging, facetime, skype, twitter, and meta,
with zillions of apps,
To immerse us in a new vocabulary
We’ve become dumb on smart:
phones, laptops, games, ovals on wrists,
Mail, podcasts, headphones and earplugs,
that shut us from the world
Where search, post, and send, is a click.
Yes, the Revolution is digitized-
we’re hooked up, addicted and uneducated,
Standing in corners, by ourselves,
with busy fingers, inviting internet apnea!
So, lets slide to unplug,
to free the monster,
And reclaim the inner space,
Where we can breathe again,
walk in the park, read, smile,
And listen to the birds.
let’s disconnect to connect
