A world of puppets

Click, click, clicking away at keyboard keys

Jab, jab, jabbing all day long at ease

Tapping, typing, online fighting

Trolling, scrolling, mind-controlling

Internet brain freeze

 

Every day I see it

Everywhere it is

Internet addiction

A world of computer whizz kids

 

Everyone neglected in a new and loveless world

Every baby howling for their mother but her reaction is unfurled

This is society’s nightmare, but they don’t see it yet

We’re plugged into sockets of mobiles handsets

 

We can’t keep on living in a brainless zombie world

We need to unplug ourselves from this heartless dream-world

Talking to strangers is an everyday thing

Yet twenty years ago it was baffling

 

Knowledge is the fruit of power but in this day it’s not

To cheat and look up online is very, very hot

You don’t need a brain anymore it seems

Just ignore your baby, blot out its screams

 

This is just what they wanted

The government that is

To have a world of puppets

A world where they’re not quizzed

 

Congratulations we have lost, the world we used to know

A world full of robots

A world of endless doze

    So true, like an awakening, sure I fall into those with technology, when I think about it. Sound so sad…
