Technology (Prompt)

Today is about technology. Has it inspired you in some way? Are you tired of people using television as a babysitter? Write about it.

Electric Avarice

Wires and fibers, clicking keys
Transporting prisoners to output watts or
Information given at a price
Per unit

Jolting through walls, sparking
Transmitting zaps and zings
Fulfilling light and heat
On demand

Pops and forks, dizzying blue fire
Harnessed and tempered
In obedient chains dance to
Our wishes

Our pure addictions, greed
Plug in, switch on, stare into
Flickering screens, bulbs and ipods
Our shackles

Jennifer Jackson
