Verse

My generation 2.0

I caught you while

you were that person

held crystallised, composed and

optimised

for a favourable reception;

to be the biggest sensation

for an hour.

 

There you stood

through a whole

ten-thousand

nanoseconds’ vibration

barely alive.

 

Fit, educated,

masterfully curated,

smiling what is expected,

polished and stylised-

the image of our generation

magnified.

 

A little bit quieter,

a little bit sadder,

learning that choice

or validation didn’t deliver liberation

or life.

But, nonetheless,

get on with procedure

and walking in line while

handing out information

blind.
