These Days 3
These days, everyone seems distracted by their
Portable universes; their cool, handheld phones.
Nobody seems inclined to engage or converse
With anyone else. O what a sad state of affairs!
What the hell's going on? ! What have we become?
Are we now mere servants of corporate control?
Apathy should be classed as a social disease;
Not something to be worn like a badge of honour.
