Making my world better

Blind people are no more
They
Have electronic implants
And
Disabled people are no more
They
Have engineered limbs and organs
So
They’re normal (that’s a relief)

Smart meters warm my house cosily
And
My smart fridge knows what I should eat
And
My smart watch monitors my heart
And
My smart toilet monitors my fibre
And
The smart lift doesn’t work when I’m over weight

My world is much better now
That
I have GPS to guide me and
Either
GCHQ (or NSA) to protect me
And
Algorithms know what is best
Because
I’m in their programme

(Chris)
