Dragon in a Genie Lamp

Yes there are dragons here in brilliant binary code.

Here today & gone tomorrow along with all our gold?

This binary digital social scape we made is nothing but 1s & 0s.

It’s so much gossamer & agreed upon lies & we no longer manufacture heroes.

Digitally banking our data away these dragons are so constant & persistent.

The dragons have counted & hoarded us while we chatted to our contentment.

So since we can’t slay them, can we contain them? Can they be wrangled by Laws?

We’ve already lost so much of ourselves & all around me are still gaping maws.

I’m not conveying anything you don’t already know. It’s about participation.

As long as we do, we might well get used to a permanent occupation.

I see the world through a Painter’s eyes and process it with a Poet's Heart....it's quite a harsh place for the soul. It scratches and wears your true self down, at times, but the Beauty is Addictive. I feel for everyone I encounter. Everyone I encounter is a teacher if I'll let them be. I Empathize with everyone I talk to & I Think about Everything-LEVi
