The Digital Natives-Poem

Listen

We communicate at the speed of light.

Conversation-we perfected it

There was this awesome thing I read on Tumblr the other day

. Oh wait…You didn’t read it. Well….

Spelling be damnmed! spellcheck  made u obsolete .

YOLO?- how cliche an idea we claimed for our own

even though it’s rehashed. #Swag because we can

maybe bother to

Justify  it with another overt brag

Trends? its easy just follow the leader

more people follow me on twitter

than the dead guys i rip off

with smart quotes.

and by the time you read this

another fad has passed you by

Our egos rage like forgotten Sun Gods where

We are our own center of the universe.

Never settling for second best. Seconds to us are

Hours for our parents.

So close yet so far apart.

We communicate at the speed of light.

Conversation-we perfected it

There was this awesome thing I read on Tumblr the other day.

Oh wait…You didn’t read it.

Well….

What can I say? i must admit that i grow tired of the games, the qwickspeak, the girls who walk away in the middle of a text conversation: what did i do wrong?

I’ll be on a date with the girl of my dreams only to lose her to the blue light of and led screen as they are hypnotized by the stuttering clicking of liquid crystal keys.

I fear that I will do the same in time

Romance? i no longer bother.

After all I’ll just keep to my ‘ships

We have countless avenues of expression,

Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Desktop Wallpaper.

Maybe I’ll even blog about it, write it into my fanfiction

#IsItArt

?

Don’t ask

maybe google knows

Everyday our souls grow more weary, more strained,Our brains fluffed and minds untrained.                    Go ahead and contradict us, we’ve already prepared a witty retort.
