How should we react to?
Boys’ toys that walk and stalk
Girl’s toys sing and swing
Jewellery boxes that swoon tunes
Fossil fuelled cars that can infume.

Untold calls ring-a-ling
Please leave our lines untapped!
P.C.’s that think for ink
One step closer to that missing link!

Tick-tock rotates our clock
Its chimes align our time.
Beep–beep…reminds that mike.
Feeding the machine, as you swerve the cuisine.

Television dulls the senses.
Dishes immortality unquestioned?
Clock alarm set for Sunday slumber.
Peaceful rest turns adrenalin buzzer.

Who’s in charge of our own devices?
To free lives so quickly encumbered.
Measuring our worth by the market’s latest numbers.
Simpler times so fleetingly forgotten.

Why do schooled fools (in homage) keep this image intact?
Perhaps to propitiate the ‘loonies’ from what was good cents?

Progression attends to the laboriously begotten.
Severed lives ever-so clinging on the thread to snap.

All caught up in the act of the Techno-Trap!

I had to smile with your "Fossil fuelled care that can infume." Is "infume" a real word? If it's a made-up word, I love your creativity. I feel your pain on the "dishes immortality unquestioned." (I've got a sink full right now. :) ) I may have to think twice about all the "Techno-Trap"s in my life.

techno trap! Mmmmm, most things can be good servants but are bad when they become our master. If we get in the trap we need to SNAP out of it. Good fun piece. Thanks!
