Peals of bellowed discontent

hearald my arrival

as I race to the ground

to create a new era of man

through the domestication of

my child unknown to me.

When my power is harnessed

and brought to bear by the

greedy clutches of curiosity and

a wish to create a stronger world

none will know my secrets

yet all will swear by me

as they chase away the dangers of night

and forget they need the sun.

I'll tear you up, whither you to coal

I'll leave you smoldering, scars across

your lacerated brain as

your synapses overload and

force your vision to lose clarity

as you stare through a screen

where I reside and thrive

bringing you a world

you will never see

yet will create tomorrow.
