LaLa Land

Disappear into your smart phone

 the world outside is doomed

 

Your few remaining human traits

  have long since left the room

 

Disappear into your smart phone

 all life beyond is lost

 

Your feelings truly virtual

 you’ve paid a mighty cost

 

Disappear into your smart phone

 while others stand beside

 

And just like you they tap their screens

 faint proof that they’re alive

 

Disappear into your smart phone

  as time is winding down

 

All spirit tapped, emotion strapped

 your history lost, unfound

 

Disappear into your smart phone

  that bed you’ve left unmade

 

Your spirit cries as memory dies

 whose LaLa land you crave

 

Disappear into your smart phone

  its power now supreme

 

Your knowledge mapped and future trapped

 —your destiny undreamed
