We didn’t know what we were doing.
It’s hard to remember how it began.
We wanted progress,
and laborless rewards.
We made computers,
We filled our creations with knowledge.
Knowledge led to power.
We became powerless to our creations.
We were enslaved by our own design.
I wish I could tell you about these things in person.
This is all that is left of my mind.
The rest lives inside a device.
