malthusian screen control

24 Sep

if someone told me that in 20 years,
all library books, videos, music, and what not
would be available on a home screen
and that people would write books, poems, and make music on the same screen,
and people would send letters and have conversations on that same very screen,
i’d call them a slinky and hope to hell
it was a kid sucking a lollipop trend,
but then again, the more people buried in screens and cut off from reality
the easier it is to distinguish between the walking dead and the living
in case you feel the need to set up fishing line and trip someone.
