2. Mindless



It’s a depressing sight

Laughable too

Humans, grown

Much too big for toys

Stand slack jawed

Often blocking pedestrians

Or stuck on a staircase

Mindless yet focussed on

Blue screens

Scrolling

Trolling

Swiping

Whatever you have it

A pocket device

Holds so much power

Over the mindless majority

That when its battery runs out

Or it finally fails to work

A human, grown

Much too big for toys

Rushes out to get a charger, a replacement

Whatever you have it

To feel a sense of security

Connection to the anti-reality

Mindless many

Focussed few

Humans, grown

Much too big for toys

Contented
