Technology Tanka

My response to the Monday poetry prompt.

The machine age brought
ease, comfort, new ways to war
and a race to space.

What will be our epigraph 
when at last we destroy ourselves?


Author’s Note: Don’t mistake me for a luddite. Some of my favorite things are electricity, WiFi, my devices…. You get the picture. But I worry sometimes about the ethical implications brought about by the leading edge of science. As to what the epigraph will be, that’s up to some alien archeologists to figure out.

    1. Ha ha. Yeah I guess I have as much right as anyone else to make a guess. But I think I shall leave that to other people. And I shall continue to wonder about the ordinary small things things in life that are still beautiful and complex.
