Pop and whir go the brain extenders,
The little pocket protecting minds,
Full of wire and flow,
Feel the Wi-Fi permeate the air,
And the cell towers hum into the ear,
If you could see the code,
The interlocking wires and diodes,
Crackling with energy.
We are cyborg people,
Tied to a machine with a screen,
And flowing information through our very seams,
You might hear the stories,
Of those who think we are breaking ourselves,
But tools have gotten better,
Since before we’d invented sliced bread,
Evolution is tools,
When we are smart enough people,
On this planet.
So, bring on your smartphones,
And all manner of tablets.
Run the subroutines and the data-edged thoughts,
Creating worlds of our own design.
Art can soar, and new art can come—
And the world will continue,
It’s forward momentum hum.
