John Henry

With this dawning
Of a new technological era,
The innate lethargy of man
Has come to prominence.

Why work,
When the machine always wins?
Why play,
When a screen’s your best friend?
Why think,
When others have the answer?
Why try,
When the world doesn’t care?

These are the questions
Of the general populace.
These are the questions
Destroying the human race.
These are the questions
That must be changed
And I will be an answer,
Till the end of my days.
