Man the machine   

Man the machine
type away the screen
lean on the mouse ’n
make the cursor curse

Across the screen
through driver glean
what’s in the housing
of our true purpose

Marx gathered and figured
the consequences of manning
the machines that do the work
of 10 fold and more

And 10 fold and more
need seek work elsewhere
and more to consume
what comes out of machines

Man the machine
we are now latched on top
to tap away our lap
and become
man the machine

One thought on “Man the machine   

  1. “And 10 fold and more
    need seek work elsewhere
    and more to consume
    what comes out of machines”

    Oh yes… that speaks of our era. Like, what have became of us…? Are we man or machine…? Machinimal…? Manchima?
    Both exciting and horrible this thing may be.
