This is not a Poem #2

At some point, we should record it for Youtube or MeTube or…

2nd scene

0   In the future there will only be social media,

      robots will serve us, they will fight in our wars,

       serve us as lovers, and we will sit alone and away

        commanding them by texts and tweets.

    Human beings will be a memory!

2       No more!

          No more!

O       No reason to worry about Global anything!


3rd scene

0  A day without Tweet is a day without sunshine

     remember sunshine, remember the moon,

     that was before the cave life began

     No more   (ends slowly)
