Casting — 2022.03.04

Modern technology makes our lives shorter;
modern medicine works wonders in vain.

Remember time without emails
and notifications
and distractions without end?

The things we once craved are gone,
crumbled to dust in their obsolescence —
a shameful reminder that foolishness only adapts.


Once
nasty
people were
required to
face those subjected
to their scorn and distaste,
a way to make themselves feel
self-important . . . superior.
Now they hide behind a screen
and feel invincible;
minds are torn apart,
and trust is lost
in this world
virtue
shunned.


I’d reach back in time

and pull

All the good forward

If I believed the past could
truly simplify our lives today;

that task is ours.
