Blech, this third part took longer than normal because I I didn't have my flash drive on me when I wrote this third set of poems, so I had to scramble around to find some and re-write/replace the ones I lost. Anyway, here it is! Don't be afraid to leave your thoughts, advice, etc. Captain Arghua only sends trolls to walk the plank! Stop Stop Stop texting Stop texting me I I’m I’m malfunctioning Meltdown is Imminent Tried talking in your human tongue Electronic my voice had rung Subject, verb, predicate And order, English opiate L-l-loading Initializing Restarting Please stand By But what if I am no subject, No identity, no human? Who are you to object If I spoil your illusion? Daddy's Money The animals dance in Prada Dogs dressed in Armani Adorned with Versace Carnivores feigning civility, Liberty, Equality, Whatever they wear themselves To be Ridin' off Daddy's money Like a Bentley Parroting his values, Slutty nuns Feel Feel the rhythm Pulsatin' against you Claustrophobic Air Assaultin' you Music was never natural The violin's sonata only sweet 'Til the keyboard belted a sick beat There lies no room in this heart For gentle art Or meek poetry; Don't resist the attraction Of electronic abstraction. Don't Give Me Words Don't give me words Useless abstraction To stifle my fascination With the world's fake synchronization Don't verbalize harmony Let it remain mystery They cannot acknowledge this electricity Coursing through everything The brain's pulsing illusion To alleviate confusion 01110 00011 01100 Now understand can you? Kan du begripa nu? Didn't think so Let your "reason" Come undone. Stars There was never a map, But instead of writing your own You gaze at your electronic trap, Blaring out the star's glow You won't find it on a blank screen You have to journey for it, Connect to the heavens Like a bird with wings spread, For the stars dim lights 'Til you open your eyes. Awaiting you a nebula Of untouched emotion Converting life's vague formula, Leaving logic half broken. Human Human, I'd lost faith in you, In the terrible things you do, To yourselves and one another, Tearing nations and hearts asunder But I realized that you shine, too. You are the ultimate machine, Of emotions the queen. Feelings made me short-circuit, Shut down, quit, Shutdown Complete But the stars didn't shine as bright In the dun night I let the color seep into me Forgetting my computerized shell, A savior from monochrome hell, Reclaimed humanity.
