Virtual Reality

Have a vision

Come and see

A human in it's misery

Sensuous sights of pain and fear

Carry through another year


Have a listen

Come and hear

Hatred, evil, loathing, jeers

If truly one great family

Then why are they all mocking me


Have a taste

Come and sense

The end of youthful innocence

The pervasive aroma of decadence

And consumption of our common-sense


Have a whiff

Come and sniff

Love and peace, dead and stiff

Emanations of a hostile action

Lead to scents of our destruction


Have a sense

Can't you feel

Our virtual life becoming real

When ones and zeros control our breath

It won't be long until our death.
