"Billy's New Toy"

Hi, my name is William, I am an 8 year old boy

My friends call me Billy, I just received a gift, a brand new toy

A piece of plastic and metal, something to access the world

A weapon of mass instruction, microchips of poison, digitally altering every boy and girl

Every life; a globalization of isolationism

Pandoras Box is now government issued, i hear

Except this is a rectangle or something of plastic and metal, some look like an eye's inside them, some look right into us, I fear

It's cool though, I mean this thing can replace God

I mean god, what a way for a kid like me to have a secret key to our world

I bet most of you had to wait till college to see some girl on girl

Some, man oh man, mano y mano, did you see the guy and the girl with the horse? It was hilarious

Isn't sex a joke? It looks like it feels really good

I mean, I know how to do it already, thanks to the videos, I wanna try it, you think that I should

Shouldn't there be a question back there?

Anyways, it's too scary, I think that I will wait a year

At least until my friend down the street, gets a new toy too

Then they'll have seen what I've seen, then they'll know what to do

And then we will experience what makes people scream

Ya know, what all you people talk about

Whenever I'm around the the adults, I listen, they think that I'm not but I am

Now with my new toy, your world is mine, and mine is yours, nobody has any privacy, nobody gives a damn

No one gives a fuck, excuse my English

Ha, that is my favorite word, why is that?

Fuck! Ha, face fuck, ha Facebook , oooh I should make a profile

Ugh, this stinks I gotta fill out all this information, I wonder where it all goes

Who knows? I mean, who is keeping track?

Ehh, I guess it better not to ask, I mean no one seems to care

They say it's on a cloud, somewhere up in the sky, somewhere out there

But, what if it's being stored underground, in the dark, ya know like a coffin filled with despair

What if it was piled up with data? So what if it is, i guess the devil may care

He recalls the cloud, I think, and then they say he fell

My new toy, says the devil is ok, in fact they say he is swell

I mean, I am eight, and I can already feel him growing inside

Grace was born upon me, the innocence of birth, and then comes the slide

Falling stock, no shepherd around, bahhhhh!!! Aren't sheep cute?

I just googled this guy "Orwell", this weird guy said some quote, I don't know, something about how life is a boot

Creepy, I mean, come on this world, it's great and all, as I see it you cater to the youth

Man, it's great to be eight with access to anything I want, wait, I can search and justify it, wait a sec while I search for some proof

Truly, I mean, this is so cool

I just got this new toy, and it's almost summer, then bam, in comes the heat, and I bust outta school

And then next I am headed to camp, I am going to be so popular, so in, I will be famous, I will be wanted, I will be... In demand

Thanks to my new toy, everyone will know how to find me, what I'm up to and then they'll be able to snatch me up right here as I stand

Well, bye everyone, once again, to sum it all up, my name is William and I am an 48 year old boy

You can call me Billy, today I received a gift of plastic and metal, excuse me while I go play with my toy

      This is definitely your calling Eric. Evil always finds a way to break through and now our advanced technology is becoming it's biggest asset.

      Thanks Dana, I totally agree, we must be diligent as the guardians of youth. The crazy catch is that once the youth have been corrupted how can they guard the next generation. It will take a large conscious movement, and I pride myself in breaking through lost souls and trying to make them understand what is truly occurring to and with the mass collective. It is slowly becoming my life's mission; my spiritual work. Thanks for the visit and the interesting story of the cousins and the cartoon.

      The part where you say " Sex looks fun and I know how to do it thanks to the video's" It reminds me of a hub I had been trying to perfect about the dangers of the internet. More so, trying to get parents to see why monitoring their child's internet activities is so important. I busted my three little cousins who are eleven and ten watching porn on their phones. I have no idea how they knew how to access that site. I like how you say what needs to be said. We walk too blindly in this world and eventually it will be the end of us all. Just want to add, I also saw an internet cartoon where the devil was a child's best friend and getting him into all mischief. Scary!

      Thank you as always Jodah. I'm pleased that this work seems to be ringing true. It is out on a limb and definitely creepy, but the sinister forces behind the actual narrative are much more disturbing than any fiction. Best to you, I'm glad I keep finding ways to intrigue.

      This is amazing Eric..creepy, but amazing. I feel it is one of you best works yet. The scary thing is that it is oh so true.

      Thanks Annasmom, I appreciate the acknowledgement of the work. I hope it is a conversation starter for those with children or those thinking of bringing new life into this world.
