The Day Will Come...

 

we now talk, read & write
in a space that has taken over our human rights

we do face difficulties
in using our human faculties in their original rights

our lips are tight
we "talk" as in write

reading off the screen is what delights
we exercise all ten fingers to write

the day will come
we bite to execise our jaws
we hold chopsticlks to test our ability to draw
we point at tree leaves to count to four

as we continue to "type to jog"
we again see cyber traffic lights
jam across the conduits & pipes
perhaps, it's time to fly a kite?
