Sympathy to Man – Poem 5 of 30 for National Poetry Month

google-datacenter-tech-131

What Man built
Became too complex

I don’t mean fire or wheel
Those could be stopped

Not bullet or bomb
Both were simple and dumb

Not light, or radio, or phone
Once, a boy could build them

Not even early computers
Those, too, were built in basements
And when they talked to each other
Man would chaperone

No…
Man’s demise
Was not these

Damn the device!
And the information on which it thrived!
Damn all computers
That tried to be!

Sympathy to Man, extinct Man
For not using his mind
To know
Where to stop
