Addictive Trade Off

Dopamine triggers
Pulling you in
With addictive endeavour
To achieve and then win
An opioid hit
When you’re lured and enticed
By drugs, sex and booze
Or the roll of a dice

Though why you react
Cave in and enrol
To hedonic pleasure
When that isn’t the goal
To be ensnared by a craving
Means the system seems stuffed
Hell bent on a path
That will destruct soon enough

Yet maybe in time
We’ll look back; understand
If this trade with addiction
Is all out of hand
Or see through the gamble
To then comprehend
If there’s a reason at all
To this self-serving end

rEvolving Communication

Once upon a time ago
Before the use of words
Man would gesticulate and grunt
Poke with finger to be heard

The next came verbal offerings
With speech to make things clear
As soon enough talk then evolved
Over the course of years

Whilst etching out and marking
Was still quite fashionable
With stick or other object
Later pen used to scribble

But in the twentieth century
The computer did arrive
With use of mouse to click click click
The new way to survive

But then in ‘rEvolving’ fashion
As though fingers were all new
Man started once again to poke
To get the message through!
