Technodysplasia


The modern world makes voyeurs of us all

We watch with baked breath and sweet delight

The poor man’s catumly, the great mans’ fall

And gawk at googaws Googled in the night.

We Facebook, Myspace, network with the Droid

Wikipedia the stars with vague surmise -

Blog, twitter and successfully avoid

The looming imminence of our demise.

And thus transfixed by glowing etherbent,

With toys that light up brightly and go ding,

Do we seek wonders in the firmament,

Yet never fathom why the caged bird sings.

Oh Lord, we DIGG the zenith of the sun

And yet we know not what we shall become.
