Rating: 5.0

The world's shrunk by our need to share,
Networked wires save trips here and there,
Make new friendships, cement the old,
Find freedom to escape the mould,
Share work, collaborate and grow,
Learn what you'd not otherwise know,
It's real life written as ones and zeros,
Poetry to be switched with prose,
Mindless as content consumers,
Blind that we're too the producers,
Beaches form from sands of time spent,
You make cash but don't see a cent,
A digital fingerprint takes shape,
That won't wipe like a cassette tape,
One status update that's careless,
May down the line leave you jobless.
