Gates of Shame

image borrowed from bing

gates of shame

bike computers, phone computers,
wrist and palm surfers, so pulled
into nano-bites that their prehistoric
elders, larger than mastodons, reduced
first to the size of dishwashers, then
laundry baskets, then bricks, then a fist,
will some day too soon
be a micro-chip inserted first
in our neck and then
our genitals.

How are you, dear friend? Hope your strength is returning. You seem to be in fine poetical form. Very fine.

George Orwell had nothing on Glenn Buttkus!
