La La 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
