We are all data,
Little binary toys,
A horde of zeroes,
Leashed to digital space,

Simply prey to a carnivorous system,
Swimming like salmon through databases,
Pushing all of the opulence upstream,
While being picked off by bears in taxman gown,

We are just numbers to be counted,
A sticker book collection,
For some child in a highborn office,
A creature with a taste for silver spoons.

  1. Excellent metaphors. Yes we are “swimming upstream” daily. Well penned work. Happy Writing.
    Have a wonderful Holiday Season. Cheers.๐Ÿ™‚
