Poem: No Internet

You don’t realize,

How much you need it,

Until the internet goes out—

And won’t come back,

No matter what you try.

Everything turns off—

Everything stops.

Not a drop.

Not a lick.

Internet makes the world slick,

And now it’s dry,


And difficult.

The room becomes just a room,

And the world shrinks.


You might be craving simple times,

And days before the social media,

But it’s necessary now,

A piece of life,

The internet is all-encompassing,

And it going out—

It falls away,

Makes for some seriously sucky days.

You may not hold the internet dear—

But never let its power leave your fears,

Because it’s never going to leave this planet,

Not in this technological wonderland,

Not here.

Want to read something longer by me? How about a whole novel! 

“Just Another Chosen One is a blisteringly paced, action-soaked debut from author Brandon Scott, sure to appeal to those who’ve gotten tired of reading the same old stories about the child of prophecy destined to save the world.” 


Let me hear your opinion.
