i have three fears.

the first is of political non-participation, an apathy which grows on its own lack and prevalence gleans, even within a just society of clear and present democratic means.

i fear the ignorant mass – the horde of would be non-affected, afflicted – grave,

in sparkly emperor’s garbs that the piper man freely gave.

i fear the internet of things – of faceless pimps and puppeteers, weavers wielders of blings long strings – ubiquitous,

in silence listens and hears and stares..

and though reason there may be to throw socialnets a wry look, fear’s not of drone fly spies or velvet lies, but of what comes after facebook.
