No Internet

Two weeks with no signal
Oh what a to do
No internet, broadband
A cyberless zoo
Of humans all zoned out
With their routine all broke
In a world that’s unwired
It’s isn’t a joke

No online existence
No texts and no calls
No emails; no Facebook
Or Twitter at all
Bar when the wind blows in
The odd ray of 3G
Or a ride into town for
Connectivity

Then in a rush of excitement
The traffic piles in
The beeps and the buzzes
Competing to win
And it’s business as normal
At least for a while
Though there’s much to be said
For enduring this trial

Yes there’s much to be said
For a few days away
From the networks of instant
Interruptions all day
And there’s much to be said
For having the time
To be switched off, unburdened
From this technical grime

There’s much to be said
For a few hours of quiet
Time rediscovering things
On a cyber free diet
That’s digested and enjoyed
With a good book or three
Finding out more about you
And a lot more about me!

So two weeks without signal
Might not be so bad
Though it will be better for sure
And we will be glad
When the tide comes back in
And those light waves bounce back
On the highways of fibre
On their optical track!

Internet Troll

She follows incessantly
But never concedes
To be impressed or suggest that she
Likes what she sees
Yet daily she visits
And comes back for more
So if that’s not a stalker
Then I don’t know for sure
What else you would call her
Except maybe a pratt
For wasting her days
In some mind wasted vat
Of sheepish behaviour
That just has to check
What another is doing
Cos her own life’s a shipwreck
And so to abate it
And calm her own storm
She hides in the shadows
And lurks, as is her norm,
To pacify, comfort,
Convince and control
In the ways of the lost
As an internet troll

Cyberland

Once upon a land there was
A state where all could be
Exactly who they wanted to
Across humanity

A place where what appeared was not
Always just what it seemed
Save a projection; conjecture
Expression all but dreamed

A place where life’s reality
Could vanish; disappear
But still a place that was so real
Accessed throughout the year

And yet this place did not exist
Not on a map or chart
But in the world of internet
The cyber network’s heart
