Life Through A Lens - Poem by Victoria Hughes

Talking movies all the time
Life spent on a silver screen
Days spent on computer games
Living through a TV

No need to leave the house
You can do it all online
Sit on your fat arse all day
Getting bigger all the time

No need to go and socialise
Can meet new friends online
No need to get a lover
Cos cyber sex is fine

Life is getting easier
Your muscles wear away
Sitting on your arse all day
Watching your life turn grey.

    Is the lens in the title a reference to a webcam?
    I just wonder if the life you speak of is actually through a lens or seen rolling on a screen, that sometimes interact.
    oh well, I enjoy the message of losing something of life and humanity gradually to technology.

    Amicalement votre,
