Tried to open an email account today

1st company said

“Need a cellphone”

I only have a landline

2nd company said

“Push button home phone ok”

Not sure

What is worse?

Inflamed ankle

Stumbling around with a cane


After 18 years

With no mobile phone

One day


Muscled into a smartphone

Hold on a second
I will open wide
So you can shove it down my throat
Artificial intelligence
Tossing the human race
Down a catastrophic slippery slope
You high tech freaks
Crave to wire everything on the Globe
Creating software and machines
Without hearts
Armies of Robots
Totally state of the art
Seizing power
All societies will fall
Because geeks
Will no longer
Have the intellectual capacity
To halt
The contraptions
From controlling us all
