total demise is inevitable
for we are becoming the machine.
i cannot work without a machine,
nor can i speak to my neighbor,
nor get to the doctor, buy food,
supplies, or do much
we have become co-dependent
my life, my world,
your life, your world,
our lives, our world
becomes the gears,
the circuits, the unbeating heart
machines break down,
gears rust, circuits fry,
programs become antiquated,
security breeches, systems fail.
what happens when this machine
we are becoming falls apart?
