Awakened from somnambulant repose
by Siren’s strident call to look within
our windows to the world where each one goes
to see what has been missed. A mortal sin
would be ignoring hash-tags, tweets and text
sent by some friend whom we have never met.
Re-tweeting while we wait for what comes next,
is one more moment wasted but we get
our daily dose of news from who knows where.
Each moment of our lives is now exposed
because we feel there’s someone who will care
about each trivial event. We’re hosed
each month with bills for added fees and tax
so we can keep abreast of all the facts.
