Once we used to talk

Why do I speak?

Spoken words silenced,

My human voice no longer heard.


Verbal communication obsolete!

Replaced by this small device

Whose buttons I now push

To spell out my thoughts and words

To deliver my now digital voice.


Emotions sent and received

Via bits and bytes

Through the cyber space

of our now wireless existence.


Uploading and downloading our virtual desires

And deleting our unwanted emotions

Like a no longer used program.


Our need for physical human interaction

Sent with a click straight to the recycle bin

And then quickly emptied as not to be reminded

Of the reality of our own betrayal…….

            Amazing commentary upon the de-evolving nature of humanity.
