LaLa Land



Disappear into your smart phone
the world outside is doomed

Your few remaining human traits
have long since left the room

Disappear into your smart phone
all life beyond is lost

Your feelings truly virtual
you’ve paid a mighty cost

Disappear into your smart phone
while others stand beside

And just like you they tap their screens
faint proof that they’re alive

Disappear into your smart phone
as time is winding down

All spirit tapped, emotion strapped
your history lost, unfound

Disappear into your smart phone
that bed you’ve left unmade

Your spirit cries as memory dies
whose LaLa land you crave

Disappear into your smart phone
its power now supreme

Your knowledge mapped and future trapped
—your destiny undreamed
