Friday Babble

The internet medical sites have produced a group of self taught medical experts with little knowledge that is a dangerous thing for their spouses forced to bear the brunt of that faulty education creating a deep divide in society between the hypochondriacs and the others driven to near insanity by the well meant incomplete information.

Life without internet

Just imagine
A world
Without internet
COVID-19
Would it have
So rapidly spread
The virus would
Still be there
Lack of news
It wouldn’t care
The world still
Merryly goes round
And when the news
Ultimately comes around
Nature would take its toll
And the ones left behind
Pick up the thread
And life goes on
Without internet

Worshipping Wants

Worshipping want
Perpetually enslaved
Imprisoned workplace
Convoluted reality
Losing senses
Mortgaging life
Ever widening gap
Have and have nots
Climbing ladder
Distant ceiling
Beyond reach
Lost foundation
Sacrificed needs
Unmanageable life
Marches on
Efforts unrewarded
Blaming others
Self-created misfortunes
Ruining homes
We are
Our own
Worst enemies
Black Fridays
Cyber Mondays
Marketing gimmicks
Ever tightening noose
Drowning ourselves
Never ending dreams

Strange World of Internet

We live in a world where more and more we communicate through social media and our passing away may be noticed only when our fingers stop posting.

Strange World of Internet

Pressed for time
Days pass by
We don’t talk
We don’t call
All the time
Our fingers fly
They now do
All the talking
Eyes fixed on
The screen upfront
We make friends
All over the world
Anonymous
Hidden in the cloud
Our circle grows
Thrive for Likes
Wait for comments
With bated breath
Words of encouragement
Make our day
We pour our hearts
To unseen friends
Parallel universe we live in
Existence defined by
User names and tag lines
What we post
On our screens
One day fingers
Will be tired
Our posts will
Become infrequent
Till they fall silent
Our unseen friends
Will wonder
Traffic will diminish
Then stop
On screen identity
Still alive
But we are gone
What a strange
World of Internet
We live in
