Alienated

Today with little warning,
I think it was late morning
I was musing on technology,
Its effect on our psychology,
And my mind kept on returning
To a reverie concerning
Whether all this stuff is fated
To make us alienated.

Now that you and all your crowd
Have been wired to the cloud
I’m sure that’s got appeal
But is it even real?
With your texts and tweets and pokes
I mean, really, folks!
When you’ve become The Truman Show
Is that even human? No!

But the world is still revolving
And perhaps you are evolving
Not through your DNA
But in a cybernetic way
For all this techno-flurry
You needn’t really worry
In a twist somewhat Hegelian,
You’ve simply turned into an alien!
