Dummies With Smart Phones

Has something insidious

Snuck up on us,

Been stalking for some time,

Tavistock Institute,

Committee of 300,

Think Tanks,

Agenda 21,

Are we intelligent,

In the know, in tune, techies,

Or dummies with smart phones,

Smart TV’s, Facebook pages,

And social media apps.

After

After the confusion

Of the illusions

And slight of hands,

After realizing

How deep and how acrid

The swamp really is,

One lands

In that place

Where others

Refuse to believe,

Cannot conceive

The utter desolation

That has been uncovered.
