In days of the future


In days of the future in virtual worlds
We’ll have time both to talk and to think

But what shall we do, should we ever decide
That we want to go out for a drink?

      It sounds nice, but alas
      If we can’t see our glass

      All too soon, so I fear,
      We would all spill our beer

      Then perhaps, I suppose
      Get it all on our clothes

      And the outcome, I guess
      Would be one giant mess

I feel this dilemma should not ruin our day
Or give us much trouble or pause

The answer, both simple and elegant, is
To do all our drinking through straws
