Ghost in the Machine

Today our lives

are run by machines

Smart Phones…

Laptops…

computers of all types…

Tablets…

programmed heat and cold…

lights turning themselves off and on…

cars that talk to us…

interactive TV…

Remote Controlled EVERTYTHING…

Oh…for the good

old days of a rotary dial

phone…a party line

for added interest

A TV with ‘rabbit ears’

and 3 channels

on a good day

Cars that just

start with a key

(always square)

The only thing

programmed then…

Streetlights at dusk

to tell us it was

time to go home
