The Last Hope

The last hope
As the era of electronics erupts
And the darkness of the 21-century suffocates us,
Swirling itself around us
Tighter and tighter taking our every breath

Why do we take these robots into our lives?
Changing the way we think and our priorities
We are killing ourselves
Slowly, slowly

It is embarrassing how stupid we seem
Not being able to read a simple sign
Ruining our minds
Changing everything we once cared about

Dying in front of us
Turning us into mindless fools
Making everything not good enough
Creating stupidity.
