A red dot appears on the bell
Letting others know that I dwell
In this global domain of information
Of endless potential and temptation!
The net is cast and look who gets caught in its mesh
Thoughts, ideas and also those with flesh
The virtual world has its roses yet be careful of the thorns
This world may make you jubilant or might make you mourn
Bullying, fraud, it has it all
Friendships broken due to politic’s thrall
This digital mirror has an electric vibe,
the world is condensed into cubes of gigabytes
Some get it wrong and some get it right,
Many depart and many more alight
I tire of relying on cyberspace to confirm that I’m still real
Am I human or just a like! What’s the deal?
It’s easy to get caught in this web of illusion
Power off and come out of this delusion!
