Chivs86 Poetry- 3 Degrees of Seperation.

Updated on April 19, 2012


Chivs86 Poetry -
3 Degrees of Seperation.

The great divide
between our lives is getting smaller.
The internet is breaking communication barriers.
The theory thinks that we're only away
from one person-
2 people away from a conversation.

So think about everyone who you know,
who they might know,
and you can kind of get the picture;
Of how close we really are,
to with anybody, getting familiar.

But what's the silly part,
well what seems a joke
is we couldn't talk to someone who lives in the North Pole.
Right? Well.. no,
It depends if their online in their homes.
Even if it's in an igloo, well so!
What if they've got an iphone?

So If anybody said that this world is to small,
Well in today's world - it's almost the truth.
Nobody's elusive to us, no more-
That's the thing,
Nothing is quite how it seems.
Technology is not the same,

There's only 3 degrees left, that separate.


Story & Inspiration

So I read a story in the newspaper, it was basically saying that rather than the ideal that we have seven degrees of separation between us, well in today's world because of the internet they say it's more like three. So I thought about this, everyone I know, all the people on my facebook, twitter etc and I believe this to certain extent true and here's an example; The legendary Mr T, I don't actually know him, but come to think about it through someone possibly who's on facebook, chances are possibly he's closer than I think. The same could go for any musician, sports personality, film star or even royalty. The possibilities are endless. I wrote before about a modern day Tower of Babel, this is basically what I think this is, leaving contact between anyone like this more possible than we all think.

Do You Think This Theory Is True?
