Global pressure rise

Updated on February 26, 2013

The problem isn't the bending of thy spoon!


Peers are the seed of the world today

Social overloading has suddenly become a norm

Networking once was for machines

Now us pushing these global buttons

Adding to the all time volumes of overlapping themes

Conversing day and night about whomever

Whatever and mostly however

It is you that must be bent back into shape


All access points to golden borders

You and me denied entry unless a known friend following occurred
People powers we now possess
in the Palms of our sweaty finger tips & mouse clicks
Begging no longer a option to buy

Social influence by means of following the leader
into overt digital clouds unlike the ones in the sky

Today's true leadership is social icons

Portrayed digitally to represent someone
or some thing that's purely trendy for a milliseconds glance
a digitized superstar once super power now old news


Could Dorothy actually be Alice?


Or maybe something
visually enhanced

graphically challenged
to make your eyes pop out of your head like these new age virtual show stoppers

Could it be that potential true cause that always seems to lead

To dollar signs down the road
while playing image copycat in a content scrapers heaven

Worshiped video recordings exploiting us now

Exposing it all for that documentary all seeing eye

A new world ordered game of sorts
being misled
down the yellow brick road

While simultaneously feeling like Alice in wonderland

As if you were one of many billions to eat Facebook's blueish looking magic mushroom

Like Neo had done with the infamous red pill


The great nut to crack however the all time questions that still remain to be unanswered

Is the matrix Architect actually the Wizard of OZ?
and is he
The father of Morpheus,
as well as is the Oracle Mr M's mother

And where the hello did that scary glitching black cat come from
wasn't it supposed to be Toto

What ever happened to them flying monkeys are they now considered angry birds

Inquiring minds would love to know
as they read blindly into their braille like weekly edition of the Inquirer magazine

published by some truly twisted peers

Who with an invaluable supply of ignorance soup

actually chosen to follow the white rabbit

who herself had a twisted sex drive & was really chasing the all time deadly Trinity

      @Isaac White, thanks for giving my poem here a chance bro, yes indeed I figured a cool blast from the past using the Matrix twist would spice things up a bit here :)

      @billybuc, Never been better my good friend Bill, I'm trying to open up that Pandora's box of my creative doors of the mind again. It tends to happen to me every once in a blue moon, you know the techystyle poetry thingy, and I hope more folks find this poem to be amusing ever so slightly if anything.

      Thanks bro for the commentary, it's much appreciated indeed.

      @Gypsy Rose Lee, LOL I figured I need to unleash a bit of Sci-fi fun mixed with a tad bit of fairy tale magic, because I wasving that feeling again of purely playing with words as us poets love to do. Thanks for sharing Rasma.

      It's still rock and roll to me!

      The more things change the more they stay the same, buddy. I just need to keep my eye on the prize and go about the daily business of living.

      I hope you are well my friend.

      Voted up and awesome. Alice from wonderland, here, who once ran after that white rabbit and ended up changing into Dorothy and man, oh, man my friend am I glad you're here with me 'cause we definitely ain't in Kansas anymore. Loved this and the pics. Video got me thinking - PCs, laptops, cyber world, oh, my. Passing this on.
