“Crazy How We Do It Now” ... A Poem written by Big Virge 1/3/2021

It’s Really CRAZY How We Communicate Now... ?!?
From Behind A Mask To Simply Ask...
A Question About A Daily Task And That’s Just The Start... !!!
From DIFFERENT ROOMS We Now Claim To ZOOM... ?!?
So Now It’s APPS That Are Running Chats...
And That’s A Fact... What’s Up With That... ?!?
Yes We Have To ADAPT But To Me It’s SAD...
That Humans Now Are Stuck In Clouds With No Planes Around... ?!?
I Truly Doubt That Ways Now Found To Scream And Shout Are Remotely Sound...
When What We’ve Found Are Ways To Be Drowned By... Cancel Crowds... !!!
Because of Things Said On The Internet...
The Traps Been Set By This World Wide Web...
That’s Said To Connect What We Want To Express...
I Think It’s Really Sad That Most Are Now Trapped...
Behind A Screen If You Get What I Mean... ?
NO Physical Presence Now Required To Strengthen...
Bonds Between Folks Because of Smart Phones...
And Calls From Zones In Locked Down Homes... !?!
UNLESS You’re A Doctor Or A... New Age HOLMES... !!!
How Smart Are We Being When What We’re Seeking...
Is..... Distanced Speaking Instead of Meeting To Exchange A Greeting... ?!?
Tech Is MARCHING But Are Humans Advancing... ?!?
With... NO More Dancing Holding On To Each Other... ?!?
Living Life Undercover So Connections Are Smothered...
It’s A CRAZY Time When You Can GO LIVE Pretty Much ANY TIME...
As Long As Your WIRED Or Indeed WIRELESS... !!!
NO Need To Connect Or To Feel The Presence of A Personal Friend...
I Sense INTERFERENCE In Things Now Spread Like Tarantulas Legs... !!!
Radio Waves All Over The Place NO MORE Face To Face... !!!
Just The Sight of Eyes When We Go Outside...
And Even When These Lockdowns End...
Will We Ever Blend Like We Used To AGAIN... ?!?
When Modern Tech Will Set The Trend...
And TRACK What’s Said By... Acquaintances...
Privacy... DEAD When Data Collects From E-Mails Sent...
Doesn’t Make Much Sense To Those Who Wish To Keep Things PRIVATE... !?!
It’s A Whole NEW ERA Where Tech’s The Connecter...
That May... DISSECT Us Rather Than Connect Us...
But Who Controls How Connections Flow... ?!?
Big Brother Now Is Built To Listen Using ALGORITHMS... !!!
Power Now Resounds Through Much That Is FOUL That Is Internet Bound... !!!
So To Communicate ISN'T Quite The Same As The Good Old Days... !!!
But The Youth Are Consumed By These Apps They Use...
TickTocking' And SHOCKING In The Posts That They’re Dropping... !!!
EXPOSING PROBLEMS And Video SHOCKERS Just To Gain WATCHERS... !?!
Seems Like NONSENSE To Older Heads But As I Said...
Most Heads Now Seem Set To Adapt To Trends...
That May Not Defend What We Call FREEDOM... ?!?
These Thoughts I Collect DON’T CALL But CONNECT...
My Words To Express Through Paper And Pen...
Well... Telephone Text That Becomes Poems...
That Cast Some Doubt On What We’ve Found...
To Be The Grounds For Now Using Our Mouths...
Because How We Relate And Now... Communicate...
Leaves Me Thinking... That It’s.....
