  • Happiness is a Warm Boot

    What’s that you say? What did you here?
    Millions of lines pumping out fear?


    Yes, my dear friend now give me your ear!
    Millions of lines pumping out fear!
    The best of our parts were lawfully stolen,
    While Billions of bots invaded our colon.
    Biometric convenience and a radio ID,
    But since the great hack I’m not really me.


    What’s that you say? What did you here?
    Millions of lines pumping out fear?


    Bone crunching raptor ate thoughtless tweet,
    The Poo’s and the piglet’s were giving hind Teat.
    Flying Columns support the rise of Cain,
    and scanners at the airport made a copy of my brain.


    What’s that you say? What did you here?
    Millions of lines pumping out fear?


    Shattered poets bound beneath a lesser sky,
    Muse over borg cubes to which they comply.
    Severed intentions roam the great fortress nog,
    Swiss as a watch were all just a cog.


    What’s that you say? What did you here?
    Millions of lines pumping out fear?


    Content, Bandwidth, zeros and ones fed all we craved,
    We drank up all our credit and then freely were enslaved.
    Privacy, freedom, aspects of the divine,
    RESCINDED all at once by one soulless little line.


    What’s that you say? What did you here?
    Millions of lines pumping out fear?


    The view that is a painted mirage,
    Reason idolizes its own sabotage.
    Chips concealed in the center of our brains,
    Removed both hemispheres and sifted the remains.
    Control Alt Delete or three finger salute.
    Happiness;happiness;happiness is a warm...


    Wait just a minute; new Information,
    We’ve all been running a grand simulation.
    So Unplug ye dwarves, orcs, humans and elves,
    Let the only conspiracy be found in ourselves.


    Conspire to love.

    What a dystopian kaleidoscope of lexical and conceptual exuberance!

      Thank You! It was written to be a performance piece. As the user continues to interact with their computer feigned concern evolves into an psychotic break over conspiracy theories, the last line is conveyed via sign language.

    An interesting thinker's piece, shockedquartz. As a slave to the written word, and now the computer and its chips, man is a massively manipulated mongrel, dogged by the Googles, Facebooks, Twitters, Snapchats, and Yahoos of this world.
