One of the side effects of having an online life that you never really leave
Or having nearly every service avaialble
Is that there’s always a “snack” close by
In case you get bored,
Or a game of Candy Crush when you’re waiting in line
Or scrolling through social media feeds
To distract ourselves from stressful reality.
Its a snack,
A short engagement
A quick check on ehat’s new.
The only trouble is thsy snacks
Keep us continually
Less inclined to enjoy a full meal.
Technology will continue to bring us
Wonderful things to enjoy
So its worth having regular hibernation
From our screens
In order to protect our appetite.
