Endless games of phone tag
and hurt feelings.
The result of “technological advancement”
a recession of personality
We’ve forgotten how to laugh out loud;
now we just “LOL”
Hiding behind the false mask of anonymity
the computer screen provides,
forgetting that there are people out there
who can see you
even if you can’t see them
We see through webcams
into other people’s lives
things that need
fixing, but forget that
our own lives are in shambles.
And when relationships go sour
or a friend becomes one no longer
it’s easier to hit ctrl-alt-delete
than make an attempt at reconciliation.
What makes this so much easier?
Is it because we have tangible personal firewalls
that we set up to limit other people’s access to
our lives? We can set up routers and hubs and
all kinds of other junk
to force people and information
into a path of our choosing,
and when we try to do that
in a real-life setting
we get confused and frustrated
and scared when it doesn’t go
Irony = the use of technology to publish anti-technology rants.
or, as I call it – realism.
turn your enemy’s strengths against him; fight The System by using The System.
