Devices are making us zombies
no longer introvert or gregarious
nor even hilarious …
mindlessly absorbed on devices

Scant face to face communication
less meaningful connections
more angst and anger
nationalism on the rise

Real relationships and community
in flux and disintegrating fast
as we relinquish our power
oblivious to authenticity

As social media blinds us
to those in real life need
constantly fed fake news
lost the ability to discriminate

No longer thinking for ourselves
soul destroying, heart breaking
we all need to wake up
take time out from devices

Learn to listen and interact
question and think things through
check your facts, get smart
listen to your own good heart!

word of the day – gregarious
