Welcome to My Poetry Site
Miswired and Weird
Devices that listen to all that you say,
Report to their masters in lands far away,
Take photos in secret, an AI complex,
They’re listening and watching, be careful
A spy in the kitchen, the hall and the lounge,
Auto-recording the slightest of sounds, your
Profile secured the day you sign up, what’s
The weather outside? Are you mad? Go
Tech to amaze is what you’ll be told, that
Secretly monitors every household, now why
Would they do that in a free world my friend?
If not to disrupt, eavesdrop and mind bend.
The wind in your hair, the thrill of high speed,
Would you really hand that to a stupid machine?
Tech for tech’s sake, sit back and relax, AI might
Get you home, then again, it might crash.
Speech recognition, machines that can see,
Incredible storage, all the data they need, deep
Learning computers, a Hell yet to be, a watched
World of nightmares where no one is free.
Imagine the risk of a doorbell that speaks, ‘right
Lads, round the back, they’re away for a week,’
I jest, but you see, where AI could go wrong, it
Was just a tooth filling, but it cut off his tongue.
There are those who imagine they’re here to play
God, real life’s not a film, we don’t need Robocop,
Self-driving cars, what a crazy idea, just plain
Interference from the miswired and weird.
