The Unsitely Internet Revisited - Poem by Hercolena Oliver

No longer is experience a prerequisite for wisdom.
Being on the imminently expanding Internet days
you have now upgraded from being simple to dim
having a propensity to behave in complicated ways.
You can now get justifyably distracted, speculate
and even to occasionally freely associate.

You may have stars in your eyes initially gazing leachery
in wondrous amazement at a not too distant cyberspace,
yet sadly the poisoning callousness, obtuseness and treachery
that has leached on reality has also by faulty default race
infiltrated virtual reality. The euphoria of cyberspacion
as a positively altered reality has been clouded in vision.

Distancing this coherence of disillusionment with illusionary
has apparent clarity, yet even transparent gaze cannot transpire evident
in spite to penetrate an opaque structure arbitrary
thus the distiction beween virtual and actual reality remains apparent.
