The Internet

It’s so easy to go to that screen and disappear into the void
of spoon fed images and preconceived ideas,
that invade your mind and align your thinking
with the global perspective of people you don’t even know.

As you leaf through these ‘pages’ your thoughts are held hostage
by a visual assault under the guise of ‘knowledge’,
as the written word is true, indisputable black on white,
and the enquiring mind gets stunted into believing without fact.

And it’s these words and images that fill your imagination,
that occupy your mind, leaving room for little else.
Your talent is consumed as precious time is whittled away,
and you turn into an island, out of touch with that which is real.
