If poetry became obsolete
and gadgets existed for every conceit
would any futures be worth contemplating?
Must we all say "seig heil" to some
Brave New World Order?
Will digital programs replace our dreams
as we become superannuated as cyber-beings?
Don't let computers control too much
or reduce your existence to
Living in techno-obsolescence
as analog trash among vast info-spheres
will non-conformists become anomalities
A few strands of hope
are worth preserving
though most are easily erased
Hopes have a way
in the face of cold logic
and reprogramming past certainities
