Digital art and poetry by Mark Beckemeyer
When technological wonders have become so commonplace
That with the natural world they assimilate and interlace
Organic life and electronic circuitry will share a common face
When the wires and silicon chips have taken on features of their own
And cutting edge developments take us places previously unknown
Will we bask in the glory of our accomplishments and marvel at how we’ve grown?
Or will we pay the dearest price for the carelessness and ignorance that we’ve shown?
As motherboards with processors begin to do our thinking
And automated robots perform the physical labor
Guided by the electronic memory banks to which they’re linking
Will we have more time to think, more moments in life to savor?
Or will our muscles twist in atrophy as our brains start shrinking?
Do you think you will rejoice at our artificial wonders
And the God like way to which our creations a semblance of life we gave
Or will our great endeavors become regretful blunders
Mechanical inventions to turn against us , and to which we become slave
The day intelligent machines do all the work and make our decisions
And plastic and metal entities have acquired second nature
They will in all of their infinite wisdom decide mankind is in need of revisions
Stripping us of our humanity and assigning us new nomenclature
Then the world their wired minds will try to make a better place
Without the meddling of men, flesh and blood ,no emotions, not a trace
But their efforts too are doomed to fail and will end in utter disgrace
Because their existence is flawed, something so terribly wrong it can’t be a plus
You see, they had forgotten, everything they knew and were was acquired from us
When man becomes conceited with his God like emulation
The world is bound to end in perfectly complete devastation
