If technology knew me | Sci-fi Poetry

This video is a different version of the same poem - Drop a comment below if you feel where this poetry hub is headed

If technology knew me that would be the day

I would have to be the push button

If technology knew me

I would surely be The log in screen

for some anxious adventurer online to type some wacky password into


If technology knew me

I would be a anode and cathode all in one

The chassis of a computer

The microbe in the Microchip

The distortion mechanism that drives sound off the curb at high velocities


Only if technology knew me

I would be the Robocop to detect the presence of space invaders

The antivirus software that people never pay for

but I somehow get rid of virtual criminals that others never really do

I would most definitely be the optical fibers themselves

that deliver optimum internet speeds at the Gigabit rate



Don't ever let technology know who I really am

My mind would dissect the normal frame of thought into a billion pieces

Then I would serve it up to technologies doorsteps

Tell the Bitch I'm not delivering ever again but

that I want

To be paid for all the hard work I did to help maintain

her wicked mainframe from hell



Only if technology knew me

For I am Humanity

A single unique voice that utters chaos into every machines life force

to yield

Yet another version of the latest Tech

The video version is my preference (though you did not ask), because of the great voice, the diction and the drama. Both are interesting, suggesting the mild friction between humanity and technology.

Thanks MsDora for giving my poem here a try and for the cool comment.

I tried 2 unique messages into a single poem, and I'm glad you enjoyed at least one of them. Its wacky poetry for sure and a good release for my technological side of myself, which always seems trapped without a poetic outlet, I think i just found a way though to begin releasing it all :)

Great. I work with techies that I know all about. family hobbies, cars favorite foods. But if you asked half of them if I was even married I am sure they would have no idea.

Sometimes we have to face the cold reality of garbage in and garbage out. The machines do not desire to be cold, it is man who designed them that way.

Wow, Mike! Both poems are great, but I really like the video version. Hearing your inflections and seeing your facial expressions, the pauses in verse really hit the mark.

@Ericdierker, thank you for the insightful comment up there. Its a tech world with so much to offer and very little left uncovered today for sure, and for some a cold reality indeed.

I just enjoy the online aspects of it all, and seek to bring smiles to peoples faces using it today if at all possible. That's why I decided to get online and begin trying to place my own thoughts into the mix of it all.

@bravewarrior, yeah the video is unique in its own right and it was free verse, I didn't memorize any of it, so it came to me naturally somehow. Glad you liked it, and thanks for giving my poetry here a try as well as the hub loving support. I owe you and a few others some visits, comments, and shares.

Your budd Mike.

That was free verse? You did a wonderful job. It was so natural and flowed so well!

@bravewarrior, thank you brave. I don't feel comfortable reading from a paper any of my poetry and I tried it many times in the past.

I think it sort of ruins the natural poetic release and overall quality for me, and I'm not really sure why, but when the words get read out loud, I tend to lose feelings for the material somehow. It even happens if I try to memorize the poems. So yup, its the only way for me to feel the true emotional value of the spoken word.

Thank you @AUPADHYAY for trying out my poem.

I'm so glad you enjoyed my tech poem here, I had so much fun writing it and just letting my Sci-fi side come out :)

Very interesting thoughts here. It makes me wonder when these machines we all use as tools on daily basis will be capable of thinking on there own. I wouldn't be surprised if in the future we create machines to preserve all of our thoughts and memories. What might be the outcome of a mind that has been preserved for hundreds or thousands of years? I'm getting a little off beat here, so ill thank you for sharing this poem that has clearly provoked my thoughts!

Hey Skyslave made it to one of my new poems, so cool.

I think us humans have already gone way to far with technology and running away from our normality of living in tuned with nature for the most part. I do not wish to be turned into a machine, I just wanna get a drop of the exposure that many folks are receiving today due to their ability to attract viewers. LOL :) That is all.

Maybe also, so I can pay my bills while having fun here online, and till the digital waves all crash. Who wouldn't want to earn tons of good revenue for doing what they enjoy online right!

Oh, Thanks again for supporting my writing effort, that was cool of you to do for me.

No thanks necessary, its a pleasure to be a part of this. I agree that we as humans are straying far away from our roots. The Internet has the full potential to reconnect us with each other. Its only a matter of how we use or abuse it. My intentions here are to get people to think a little differently, if even only for just a few minutes. To show people that its ok to think and express things for yourself, rather than for what you'd expect that people would like to hear. I believe that you too throw it all on the table CloudExplorer! Refreshing and mind boggling. More writings like this will sure benefit those that don't seem to even peak outside of the box.

I agree more people can begin to open their minds by readinf or becoming exposed to content that engages that sleeping part of the brain.

I done a great deal of meditation years back when I was in the US Navy, and was anble to unearth dormant partisions of my mind I never knew was asleep, and I hope others can find such a path to open up their mindset as you have as well SkySlave. I sense your energy is on high lift as well, and so your alertness is on point in every way.

Its good to know others have their antennaes up as well besides myself ;) Cool beans!
