Magical gifts tools we invented

For menial tasks boredom prevented

Life easier in many ways

Medical technology airplane delays


Helps do what’s not easy to do

Instant research connection too

Information for democracy ignorance abated

Lacking information eradicated


Using tools caution in order

Stay mindful or be in hot water

First fairly simple Y2K taught us that

Reliance on a system can be a brat


Networks breakdown others sabotage

Stay awake or feel the barrage

Other fears darker insidious

Diluting human connection serious


Life source community energy exchange

Electricity of cells and flesh when interchanged

Remember when alone plugged into machine

Relegating connection to eros and dream


How do you use technology, how does it serve you? Do you

substitute your life online with personal connections?

Do you have “enough” face to face community?
