Virtually Reeled

Into the world of binary
Humankind is looking for rhythm;
Clubbed into virtual
As mere puppets of algorithm!

We are constantly tabbed
Under surveillance of artificial eyes
Touted on us are tinted glasses,
Working as per corporations might

Brains trapped
Injected with content;
Emptying it completely
Into the dyspotic world, it is wired!

Programmed they say
Indeed we are;
Looking through the prism of binary
Reality seems scarred!

The world at fingertips
Scrolling up and down,
Heart pops with a mere click
Lacking emotions,
They are merely a sound!

Into chats we sneak,
For passing time with exchange of words…
The world out is crowded indeed
Lonely yet is each soul!

Looking for constant company
Friendships are virtual too
Convincing each other with emoticons,
Behind the veil of smilies lies a harsh truth…

Into the world of binary
Screened we are all,
In the urge to be recognized
How many faces do we don…

Posting pictures
Sharing memes,
Trapped in the nexus of virtual;
Ain’t we humans losing touch with self indeed living in vain?
