Technology was meant to set us free
Sadly, it wasn't to be

A generation of zombies 
Wasting our lives away
Poking people down invisible wires
Laughing out loud as they reply
With a 10-second video
Of a monkey drinking his own pee

Weren't we more productive
When only four channels were on the box?
In the days when watching nobodies 
Go about their daily business
Was reserved for peeping toms 
And the secret police 

Christ could come back tomorrow
Dispensing wisdom
That would echo through the years 
But nobody would be able to hear him
With white Ipod headphones
Stuck in their ears

The moral decay is well under way
When a live feed
Of bestiality
Is just a click away

    Wow. Some write here. Scary where we have found ourselves, isn't it? Listen, about the Shape poems, I was only referring to the fulton-shape poems that Brian Strand created, and referring to his contest. Regular Shape poems are different and can simply be any shape. Check the definition out under Poetry Forms on the site. Just FYI as I forgot to mention that. Love, Shar
