Wait Your Turn

Wait Your Turn

My computer, it has a mind
Its own and superior to mine
With knowledge I rarely find
If my message goes out, fine
Still, what does it mean, to be
Raised analog or even before
In our complex digital reality
Started work, so much in store
No computer, no smart phone
No little birds chirping spam
Nonsense, with many a clone
No books of faces, one gram
Now telegrams are unknown


Making sense, more common
Sense, not common any more
Mega input/output our burden
All our open and closed doors
Portals we go through or miss
They all point to our final exit
It may close with a bang, a kiss
Appear when we least expect it,
It might explode in front of you
Not be there when craved most
Anyone may push you through
Spread it on your morning toast
No need to ask your permission


At the end, what have we done
Made even one single life better
Not ours alone, but another one
Have we unshackled our fetter
To dance and chance, pirouette
To turn on a toe, juggle worlds
Such spinning is beginning, yet
We begin at the end, get whirled
Forward to gain rapprochement
Die, move on, the great beyond
Share your learning and intent
If you prove not first or second
Eternity eternal; wait your turn


Peace is Purpose, Nonviolence is Strength,
Diversity is Unity, Empathy is Empowerment
